Touché Amoré Touche Amore have placed for sale, and have sold out of, a shirt celebrating the death of Fred Phelps, (former) leader of the Westboro Baptist Church. In a Facebook post, the band stated:
Here we are years later, and the man has died. We got messages saying we should reprint the design, so we thought "we'll do an updated version and have the proceeds go to benefit what the man lived the last years of his life trying to dismantle." We feel there is beautiful irony in selling an image of a bigot and using the profit towards achieving equality for exactly what they hated. Which is why all net profit (money earned after cost/printing) will be going to http://www.hrc.org
