    whether you would have bought from them or not, I think it's still worth taking a stand.

    I have called them out (on Twitter) for continuing to stock KISS and David Bowie shirts. I don't know if they're guilty. It doesn't matter in this discussion. But if removing MJ due to unproven allegations, they SHOULD also remove those guys' products. They need to be held to account for their hypocrisy.

    I have asked them whether their decision to stock KISS and David Bowie means that they consider sexual abuse of women and girls to be more acceptable. they haven't responded directly. But we should continue to ask them that question!

    I said this before, I am a fan of KISS' music, however Gene Simmons has absolutley NO room to pass judgement on Michael Jackson the way he does.

    We can't directly compare these two as hypocrisy.

    I've seen people suggesting that

    I'm a KISS fan, as well (they're my second favourite band, with Queen being the first) but I wouldn't liken Gene Simmons to what Michael Jackson was accused of. Gene Simmons is no saint sexually. A groper and such he definitely is. But I think child molestation is a few rungs below groping and being a pig, so him judging someone he thinks is one isn't too much of an issue, in and of itself.

    And he's full of crap about Michael Jackson. And Gene (as nice of a guy he is and he actually is, believe it or not) is extremely judgmental and his opinions kind-of suck, anyway.

    I didn't even know H&M carried any KISS shirts, though. Now I'll have to go look!

    I did just get a killer Michael Jackson shirt from Old Navy, though.

    This kind of thing comes with the territory of living in a democracy...where we have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of the media and commercial freedom. All we can do is allow our voices to be heard when we disagree with corporate decisions and exercise our free will to boycott such corporations. There are many, many outlets that sell high quality and excellent MJ apparel, so we just support them with our dollars and pay the others dust.
