T-shirt said to be offensive to Mexico

The Urban Outfitters retail chain is once again upsetting some people with a T-shirt it’s selling.

The shirt reads: “New Mexico, Cleaner than Regular Mexico.”

An official with the Anti-Defamation League wants the retailer to stop selling the shirt -- because it suggests that ”Mexico is a dirty place.”

Urban Outfitters has run into similar controversy before. Two years ago, it stopped selling a game called ”Ghettopoly” after black civil rights leaders protested. Last year, it stopped sales of a T-shirt that read, “Everyone Loves a Jewish Girl,” surrounded by dollar signs. The Anti-Defamation League objected to that one, too.

It also angered pro-voting groups with a shirt that said, “Voting is for Old People.”
