A New York clothing company has introduced school shooting hoodies that have bullet holes in them and feature the names of four schools where nearly 100 students were shot to death, including Sandy Hook, Columbine, Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Virginia Tech.

Bstroy, a self-described “neo-native” post-apocalypse streetwear brand, according to Paper Magazine, has been slammed with comments — of both support and disgust — after showcasing their Spring 2020 menswear collection, called “Samsara,” in a series of posts on Instagram.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Under what scenario could somebody think this was a good idea? This has me so upset. If any of my followers no (sic) anybody involved with this clothing line, please ask them to stop it immediately,” tweeted Fred Guttenberg whose daughter, Jaime, was killed in 2018 by Nikolas Cruz in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Another media outlet, RARE, noted that “the model they have in the Sandy Hook hoodie looks a lot like the Sandy Hook shooter.”

The family of a teacher killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting also voiced their outrage:

RARE also reported: “Based on the prices listed on fashion house’s website you’ll soon be able to buy one of these daring fashion statements for at least $250 a pop, with absolutely none of those profits going to the victims’ families or to any organizations working to stop gun violence.”
