State Fair orders vendor to remove two T-shirts

WEST ALLIS (WISN) — Organizers of the Wisconsin State Fair had shootings in Ohio and Texas in mind when they ordered a vendor to remove two T-shirts being sold at the event.

After several complaints, State Fair CEO Kathleen O’Leary says they had vendor Leon Leather remove a shirt which said LGBT, accompanied by pictures of the Statue of Liberty, guns, beer and President Donald Trump.

Another gun shirt was also removed.

“Certainly with the firearms, the shirts, messages that were on that, in light of the sensitivity of the unthinkable things that have happened it isn’t what we want here at the Wisconsin State Fair,” O’Leary told WISN 12 News.

The manager of Leon’s says everything they sell is not meant to be offensive, but funny.

The shirts are still sold online.
