Utah mother buys all ‘pornographic’ t-shirts from PacSun

A Utah mother decided to buy every single explicit shirt in a PacSun store to keep them from displaying any at the mall.

Judy Cox spent nearly $600 on all “visual by Van Styles” t-shirts at the University Mall in Orem, Utah. She was shopping with her 19-year-old son on Saturday when she saw what she calls a “pornographic” display of the shirts in a PacSun store window.

She spoke to the store manager about the display, and while Cox said she was polite, the manager said they “needed to talk to corporate offices and it could take days.” Since that would take too much time, Cox simply bought up all the shirts.

The concern she says is not in selling the shirts but displaying them in the window, she believes it goes against Orem City’s decency code. Cox believes the code should match up to the State code, “If the buttocks shows without an opaque covering it’s illegal. Two of these clearly cross the line.” Cox told KUTV in Utah.

KUTV said calls placed to PacSun’s corporate office and the t-shirt artist were not immediatedly returned.
