Just saw this advert on my FB feed. What the absolute? I know it’s aimed at adults but even then is it trying to say the person wearing it is thick? Is it only me that that thinks it send out the wrong message? I’m happy to be told I am missing the point or I am too old to understand confusedhmmwink

WTF shock

LaurieFairyCake Sat 05-Jan-19 19:35:00

Well I laughed

Which I'm sure is the point of them

I interpret it as simply trivialising paedophilia.It's saying she's smart, she won't go off with a stranger on the promise of candy, she needs to see the candy. I'd report it to FB for a start.

I don’t get it. Does candy = cock?

Thats fucking disgusting. They should be pulled up for that and made to see the horrors of child rape victim's lives after these cunts violate them. Im so angry. As for the fuckwits who wear them. They are ignorant twats.

hmm outrageous tshirt

That's awful sad I'd report it. Some things aren't funny.

Not much to get. She won't get in a van with a stranger on the mere promise of candy, she needs to know the candy is real first.

Glad I’m not overreacting! I am looking into the company and reporting to FB. I live in the Middle East so rules are slightly different to the uk.

Jesus wept.

Get a grip...that's halarious

JustABetterPlayer Sat 05-Jan-19 19:57:17

Its not the best joke in the world but it’s hardly offensive.

ThePinkOcelot Sat 05-Jan-19 20:00:05

I don’t find that funny at all. Don’t know how PP can say it’s hilarious?!

It's very offensive - trivialising abuse.

paintinmyhairAgain Sat 05-Jan-19 20:01:33

hardly hilarious its pretty stupid imo why would anyone think this is amusing let alone wear it.

BreakYourselfAgainstMyStones Sat 05-Jan-19 20:01:46

It's hardly outrageous, it's an adult t-shirt, I could see your point if they were making them for 5 year olds.

GenerationSnowflake Sat 05-Jan-19 20:02:59

it made me smile too. Not the best possible taste, but hardly offensive. I can teach my kids about strangers danger and take it very seriously, and laugh about stupid jokes.

As usual, you can laugh about anything, but not with anyone!

nocoolnamesleft Sat 05-Jan-19 20:03:17

Trivialising and normalising child abduction for the purpose of child sexual abuse. Appalling.

RLOU30 Sat 05-Jan-19 20:03:52

It’s certainty not hilarious imo but it hasn’t caused me to drop my phone in horror. It’s just pretty much tasteless and stupid.

Amorea Sat 05-Jan-19 20:05:34

I'm glad you're reporting it, OP.

OrangeSunsets Sat 05-Jan-19 20:10:39

Really? People think it’s funny? Do you not think 5yo can read?
It’s funny if it’s a directed comment at a certain person but as a T-shirt that anyone can read..?

singleascheeseslice Sat 05-Jan-19 20:11:34

It's an American thing. I've seen American guys use it as a weird jokey pick up line. hmm There's also one about puppies. Reminded me of the film Savanna Smiles where they abduct a little girl by luring her into the van with puppies. :/

Jesus christ, This world has went mental with snowflakes...if these are the parents god help the generation of kids that need to be brought into this world brainwashed to be offended by EVERYTHING!!
