Forever 21 has pulled a controversial t-shirt after getting a huge backlash from consumers who called the gear “shameful” and “rapey.” The graphic tee featured a slogan that seemingly referred to sexual consent: “Don’t Say Maybe If You Want To Say No.” The Internet response was overwhelmingly negative, with Twitter users accusing Forever 21 of cracking jokes at the expense of rape victims. A rep for Forever 21 tells TMZ it took immediate action to yank the shirt once the feedback came pouring in, and added … “We sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by the product.”
