JCPenney Pulls Controversial T-Shirt

JCPenney has agreed to pull a girls’ T-shirt for sale on its website that said, "I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me." The accompanying product description didn’t help matters, either: "Who has time for homework when there's a new Justin Bieber album out? She'll love this tee that's just as cute and sassy as she is." The shirt quickly became a viral sensation, with people tweeting in disgust and signing an online petition for the shirt to be removed from shelves. JCPenney said in a statement Wednesday that the shirt “does not send an appropriate message” and that the department-store chain would stop selling it immediately.
