St. Patrick鈥檚 Day is almost here, and while we prep with St. Paddy鈥檚 nail art and get ready for Guinness cocktails, we鈥檝e come across what might be the most offensive St. Patrick鈥檚 Day t-shirt of the year.

St. Patrick's Day crowd

Spotted by Mic on PubCrawls.com, the 鈥淒runk Lives Matter鈥 t-shirt is totally courting controversy by, obvs, attempting to celebrate (?) St. Patrick鈥檚 Day by playing off of the Black Lives Matter movement. It even uses the same font as BLM.

Drunk Lives Matter

This should be pretty darn obvious, but here we go: Using the symbol/slogan of a civil rights movement (however much you might change it) to promote drinking isn鈥檛 cool. It鈥檚 not funny or cheeky or even edgy. In fact, it鈥檚 wrong and offensive. It trivializes the fact that, as Black Lives Matter tells us, 鈥淏lack women [bear] the burden of a relentless assault on our children and our families鈥 Black girls are used as negotiating chips during times of conflict and war鈥 Black queer and trans folks bear a unique burden from a hetero-patriarchal society鈥 [and] 2.8 million Black people are locked in cages [prisons] in this country鈥︹

The shirt has also popped up on Amazon in various colors 鈥 ya know, so you can be offensive on any occasion. Natch, peeps are NOT impressed鈥

What do you think about the 鈥淒runk Lives Matter鈥 t-shirt? Let us know @BritandCo!
