Sweater At Target Labeled ‘Deeply Offensive’ Target Responds: Get Over It

People suffering from certain conditions or disorders may easily get offended by things that seem to make fun of their condition.

While these feelings may be legitimate, sometimes they may come across as exaggerated. A young woman who is a regular customer at a Target store was deeply horrified by a sweater that was being sold at the store. Reign Murphy was going about her day when she decided to go shopping at Target. While shopping, a red, green, and white sweater caught her attention. She picked the sweater up and was shocked by the “insensitive” words emblazoned across the front of the sweater.

The phrase on the sweater read “OCD Obsessive Christmas Disorder.”

Reign, who was suffering from the real OCD at the time, was deeply offended by the phrase that she snapped a photo and shamed the US retailer for making fun of people with the psychological disorder. She later shared a Tweet alongside the photo that went viral immediately receiving over a thousand retweets. The tweet read “I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t sell my mental illness as a fashion statement.”

Although the phrase on the merchandise has been used by many product designers — to describe those who love everything Christmas, and perhaps go overboard, the play on obsessive-compulsive disorder had some internet users enraged while others thought the message was neither offensive nor hurtful despite dealing with the disorder themselves.
