The T-shirts feature a busty lady in a baseball jersey and the slogan, "Don't Let Breast Cancer Steal Second Base," an obvious allusion to the schoolyard euphemism for copping a feel.
Kate-Madonna Hindes, who is currently suffering from cancer herself, saw the image on Turman's site this week and took to Twitter to voice her displeasure.
I'm absolutely fuming over how sexually demeaning this shirt is: http://bit.ly/DisgustingAdam
[jump] She wasn't the only one offended by the shirt:
Hindes has lost one friend to breast cancer and three to cervical cancer and is currently battling cervical cancer herself.
"It's very much aimed at men," she says of the t-shirt's cheeky slogan. "Girls don't worry about getting to second base. Men worry about getting to second base. Women worry about taking care of their bodies." Turman says the spelling error is the fault of his Boston client.
