Dude! That Was Like 28 Years Ago!
American Apparel has apologized after an employee posted the picture above for the 4th of July:
"We deeply apologize for today's Tumblr post of the Space Shuttle Challenger. The image was re-blogged in error by one of our international social media employees who was born after the tragedy and was unaware of the event. We sincerely regret the insensitivity of that selection and the post has been deleted."
Yeah, 28 years is going back in history a little far for our latest 'me' generation. They can barely remember 8 years ago, much less 28 years.
There's an old saying by George Santayana that, by American Apparel's excuse, no one under 100 will know: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
We are in for some terrible times ahead.
