Bloomingdale’s decided to pull a “Fake News” t-shirt after one journalist whined on Twitter than the fashion piece “isn’t funny or fashionable” and “delegitimizes hard working journalists.”
[PIX11 reporter] Allison Kaden was shopping at the White Plains location Sunday afternoon when she spotted a mannequin wearing a shirt emblazoned with the phrase “Fake News,” a politically charged phrase that was made popular by President Donald Trump.
Kaden snapped a photo and tweeted at Bloomindale’s: “this isn’t funny or fashionable. It further delegitimizes hard working journalists who bring REAL news to their communities.”
[…]Bloomingdale’s responded Monday morning, thanking Kaden and promising to remove the shirt.
Imagine being this fragile.

No, journalists are not "heroes" and no amount of money will change that.
Firefighters are heroes, soldiers are heroes.
Most of you just write blogs based off of Twitter outrage. Others harm people's lives with smears and lies.
That's not heroic.https://t.co/Bl1BOX38Uz
