Urban Outfitters is under fire for selling a t-shirt with a graphic depicting Jesus Christ holding up a beer mug with the caption "Jesus, I'm Drunk."
The description for the $24 shirt reads: " Throw some back with the holy man himself in this epic tee!"
The shirt is part of the retailer's clothing line made specifically for St. Patrick's Day, which also includes shirts that say "Kiss Me I'm A Wee Bit Irish." Irish Central first reported on the shirt.
People have complained on social media that the shirt is offensive and insulting. We reached out to Urban Outfitters for comment and will update when we hear back.
Here's a roundup of responses to the shirt on Twitter:
Offensive on so many levels...no one would dare make such derogatory comments/t-shirts about any other religious... http://t.co/ukFTD2YRtZ— Puella est Bona (@LLS2012) March 16, 2014
