Hats Get Pennsylvania Sisters Kicked Out Of Mall

A fashion statement caused a premature exit from a Pennsylvania mall for two sisters who wanted to pay tribute to their late mother.

Zakia Clark and Makia Underwood were wearing hats that they designed themselves after their mother, 51-year-old Jackie Underwood, died of cancer. The hats contained the phrase “F*** Cancer”, with the “c” replaced by a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon.

Apparently, the slogan was too much for security personnel at a North Philadelphia mall where the girls were shopping for clothes for their mother’s funeral. Guards asked them to remove the hats and, when they refused, were escorted out of the mall.

Mall management issued a statement saying, “The mall is first and foremost a family destination. Certain words and images, whether obvious or suggested, spoken or written on clothing, are considered profane and can offend many people.”

The sisters then told local ABC affiliate WPVI that there are other items of clothing with similar sayings for sale at the mall, including one that reads “(expletive) you” available at Urban Outfitters.

“To say they don’t want that in their mall, but they sell it… it just wasn’t right,” said Makia. “It wasn’t right to kick us out, and you sell things with curse words on them.”
