Emmure removes controversial t-shirt from online store

Emmure seems to have a pattern of debuting things, and then removing them. First it was singer Frankie Palmeri's Cold Soul clothing line, then it was the title to their "Bring A Gun To School?" song. Now, shortly after introducing the t-shirt below to their merch store, the item has apparently been pulled from said store. We're not sure why exactly, other than a few bloggers out there having emotional breakdowns about it. Oh, well... so concludes our weekly Emmure news item.


Emmure t-shirt pulled from online store

UPDATE: Right on cue, Emmure has now issued a statement on the matter. We stand corrected: this is not a new shirt. However, I find it highly suspect that within hours of a few punk bloggers posting stories expressing their disgust with the shirt, it's removed from the website. Anyway, here is their statement:

"No, Emmure did not remove a T-shirt from the 518 webstore because we thought it was controversial. We just don't want to our fans to visit our online stores and see the same stuff we were selling on tour just weeks ago. As a collective we are constantly striving to produce new content for our listeners in all aspects. Merchandise included. I will have you know we have been printing 'Ask Ya Girl' shirts ever since 2009 and was a big seller on last years RockStar Mayhem tour. Sorry internet but this is not news. You are 5 years late."

As much as you like to call yourself a metal news site.

This wasn't taken down because of it being "controversial"

This shirt is sold on almost every Emmure tour.

Maybe they just want people to buy NEW stuff and not rehashed tour merch.

This is not news.

Why the fck would All-In allow this stupid t shirt in the first place? Blows my mind.

News, blogs, regardless of what this is categorized as, its a fuc*ing stupid shirt none the less. Its an outdated trendy saying that even urban outfitters doesnt care for anymore, which makes more sense that an outdated band like emmure would use. And frankie is one ugly, fat motherfuc*er whose body resembles that of E.T. I doubt any slut on the todem pole would care what his dick taste like. Idiots.

I keep refreshing the page hoping it's going to say Emmure has crashed it's tour van into a ravine so we can thankfully never again hear from this band who tries to hard to be edgy and sounds like garbage.

if you are someone who wears this shirt I hope your parents are embarrassed to call you their son, and i hope you never get a job b/c you most likely are that dumb gay who would wear this shirt to a job interview.

Emmure: Lack-of-Self-Awareness Core

Also, boring beyond comprehension.

lambgoat actually thinks it's relevant enough to get emmure's attention. lmfao
