It’s been a while since a t-shirt made this much news. The Scientology Is Gay, Very Gay t-shirt worn here by indie film guy John Roecker has at least a few people pissed. One of them scientologist Jenna Elfman. Here’s the scope from TMZ.com:
“Indie film director John Roecker tells TMZ he was walking to his car with a female friend in LA’s trendy Los Feliz neighborhood last Sunday when he was approached by a shirtless man and a tall blonde. “Hey, man, you’re making fun of my religion,” said the stranger angrily.
Roecker quickly recognized the couple as actor Bodhi Elfman and his wife, ‘Dharma and Greg’ star Jenna Elfman. Mr. Elfman’s ire was apparently drawn by Roecker’s self-made t-shirt, which had a picture of Tom Cruise on the front under the caption “Scientology is Gay!” and a ‘Stayin’-Alive’-era John Travolta on the back with the words “Very Gay!” For the record, both Cruise and Travolta have said repeatedly they are not gay.”
The encounter was later relayed to KROQ morning hosts Kevin and Bean. Apparently this isn’t the first time Roecker’s t-shirts have offended the scientologist bunch. Pretty funny if you ask me. The t-shirt is so out there I don’t think anyone is taking it seriously, well except for the Scientologists.
I think Tom Cruise is an idiot and Katie Holmes is a brainwashed idiot. But this shirt is interesting and her belly looks like it’s about to explode. So there.

Fitting I guess that we have Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears t-shirts back to back. You can get a Deep Throat shirt shirt similar to the one Christina Aguilera is wearing at DeezTeez.com.

Mega retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has announced that it will stop selling several t-shirts after being boycotted by teenage girls. The girls have objected to slogans on the shirts they believe are demeaning. Who need brains when you have these slogan t-shirts, and Blonds are adored, brunettes are ignored are two of the slogans that may have led to the teenage girl-cott.
The teen-oriented apparel company, often criticized for its suggestive advertising featuring scantily-clad young models, did not specify which T-shirts it would pull but said in a brief statement that “We recognize that the shirts in question, while meant to be humorous, might be troubling to some.”
Earlier this week, the Women & Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania launched a “girl-cott” of the store in protest over the T-shirts, launching an e-mail campaign and appearing on NBC’s “Today” show to air their concerns.”
Other shirts slogans in the Casual Luxury line by Abercrombie & Fitch include:
Do I Make You Look Fat
I’m Not With Stupid Anymore
When the going gets tough, the tough go blonde
I had a nightmare I was a brunette
you were never my boyfriend
explain to me again why I need a boyfriend
college girls have all the fun
careful I had a bowl of bitchy for breakfast
No Money No Car No Chance
