Clothing Maker Drops A Bomb With Mohammed Cartoon T-Shirt

UPLAND, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Muslims are sure to be up in arms now that an entrepreneur has turned the inflammatory cartoon of the prophet Mohammed printed in Danish newspapers into a T-shirt.

Dan Jordan, CEO of the Upland, California-based MetroSpy clothing, says after news of the cartoon broke a week ago, he downloaded the image of the cartoon showing Mohammed with a turban made from a bomb, and started printing shirts.

The company’s website claims, “failing to print these images mean the terrorists have won,” and Jordan says he doesn’t fear reprisal from Muslims.

So far, the company has only had a few nasty e-mails from critics, but Jordan says he got more hate mail when he printed Boycott France T-shirts a few years ago.

That seems to be quite the opposite with the Mohammed shirt. Jordan says it’s his best seller this year so far.
