Hey everyone, I just received this message about a company named “Icon”. Please read, respond and forward this post. This kind of “imagery” can do a huge amount of harm to Pit Bulls. Icon should be ashamed.
A friend recently made me aware of a company called “Icon”. They sell motorcycle gear and are using negative imagery of pit bulls in their “Represent” line products.
Here’s the letter she emailed them:
I recently saw a print advertisement for your “Represent” line of products, and was immediately and profoundly dismayed, offended, and repulsed. The teeny-tiny fine print beneath this ad that suggests that your company does not endorse dog fighting in no way compensates for the way in which these products perpetuate the attitudes and psychology that fosters the cruel and horrifying world of dog fighting. I am forwarding the information about your products and your company to every organization I can think of to foster a boycott until these products are pulled. You should be ashamed.
Here is a link to the line of gear on the company’s website:
I have emailed them as well and if you find this as repulsive as we do then I hope we can ban together and overwhelm them with emails like the one above.
I’m going for getting this on the news…so stay tuned.
