PacSun under fire for shirt featuring upside-down flag


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A clothing company pulls a controversial t-shirt off the racks after many Americans spoke out, calling it offensive. The shirt featured an image of the American flag in black and white and flying upside down.

PacSun’s Facebook page exploded with comments from angry customers who feel displaying the shirt, especially on Memorial Day, was unpatriotic.

PacSun said they decided to stop selling the shirt out of respect for veterans. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
