If you thought the Chrissy Houlahan ‘sweatshop’ story was shocking, buckle up.

The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Houlahan’s company sold ‘dehumanizing’ t-shirts in the 90’s that were so offensive that they ended up being pulled from stores:

In 1999, J.C. Penney pulled a line of And1 young men’s shirts after a feminist organization complained they were ‘insulting’ and ‘dehumanizing.’ They featured such slogans as ‘Your game is as ugly as your girl’ and ‘You like that move? So does your girl.’

But there’s more…

Houlahan’s company also selected a basketball player and a coach to represent their brand in television ads, both of which had records of physical assault:

In 1999 and 2000, the company landed in hot water again when it aired TV ads starring New York Knicks guard Latrell Sprewell and Indiana Hoosiers coach Bob Knight. While a player for the Golden State Warriors, Sprewell had been suspended for choking his coach during practice. Knight also choked someone during practice: player Neil Reed.

Feeding workers ‘pig slop’ in Chinese sweatshops, profiting from ‘dehumanizing’ t-shirts, and using two men who physically choked people as her company’s spokesmen… What else is Greedy Chrissy hiding from Pennsylvania voters?
