CHICAGO (WGN-CNN) — Urban Outfitters is causing some controversy over what some perceive to be a gang sign on one of its t-shirts.
While the company calls it the shirt 'Vanguard Pitchfork', critics said the sign looks disturbingly similar to a symbol for notorious Chicago gang, Gangster Disciples.
Critics want it pulled immediately.
Urban Outfitters has not commented.
It's not clear whether the company knowingly used the symbol of the gang or whether it was a mistake.
