Fan told to remove Johnny ‘fucking’ Marr T shirt by EasyjetThere are a lot of offensive things in this world.

 

Mass starvation. Endless war. Vile diseases. X Factor and budget airlines who change their rules on baggage charges but Easyjet have decided that the rather amusing Johnny ‘fucking’ Marr t shirt is so offensive that they asked a passenger to remove the shirt on a recent flight.

 

Journalist Natalia Shinyaeva was asked to remove the shirt on a recent flight in a move that has righted all the wrongs in the world. Thank god there are still some moral standards out there!

  1. I wonder if EasyJet would prefer a more subtle T shirt slogan on their passengers? I’ve got a shirt by a UK Black Metal band called ‘Artisian’ that politely requests the reader to ‘Bite it for Satan You Fucking Cunt’. Would that be more acceptable?

  2. Happened to a friend of mine in a ‘who the fuck is mick jagger’ shirt. Would love it if the shirt was removed to reveal offensive tattoos!

  3. A pointless bit of venting if you ask me John. I doubt the request from Easyjet was part of any mission to “right all the world’s wrongs”. Just a really simple request for someone to take off a t-shirt with a big old swear word on the front when they are about to board a passenger jet, presumably full of families with kids who may take offense at it. What’s the big deal? She wasn’t thrown in prison or put in detention – just asked if she’d change a t-shirt?

    Implying that they would be better off concerning themselves with “Mass starvation. Endless war. Vile diseases” is totally irrelevant – kind of like catching someone vandalizing your car and then letting them off because Al Qaeda blew up the Twin Towers.
