Topman criticised by Liverpool fans for selling red '96 karma' t-shirt

TalkSPORT presenter Andy Goldstein stated his disgust at Topman's choice of merchandise

The clothing retailer Topman has faced sustained criticism over the release of a red shirt featuring a rose and the number 96 - the number of people who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

Topman is coming under mounting pressure to withdraw a controversial shirt from sale after being criticised for displaying an apparent reference to the Hillsborough disaster.

"I think there are too many coincidences", she told BBC Two's Victoria Derbyshire programme.

Vanguard Telecommunication Services ETF (VOX) Declines 0.56% for Mar 15
Finally, Parsec Financial Management Inc. raised its stake in Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF by 8.4% during the 4th quarter. The institutional investor owned 7,446 shares of the company's stock after selling 3,252 shares during the period.

The retailer advertised a red, long-sleeved shirt on their website for £20 on Thursday.

The song's lyrics include the line: "It's called karma, baby, and it goes around / What goes around comes around". "And that's why I believe this T-shirt is definitely connected and referenced to Hillsborough".

Ms Brookes said: "Our 96 were decent human beings who did nothing wrong".

The Deutsche Bank Reaffirms Hold Rating for Land Securities Group (LON:LAND)
The stock of Ranger Direct Lending Fund Ord (LON:RDL) earned "Buy" rating by Liberum Capital on Tuesday, October 20. KeyBanc Capital Markets downgraded the shares of REXX in report on Tuesday, December 22 to "Sector Weight" rating.

While it's easy to see how the message could be misconstrued (what was your first thought when you saw it?), Topman have since issued an apology explained that the design was an innocent reference to a Bob Marley song released in 1996 called "What Goes Around Comes Around".

Ms Brookes, whose 26-year-old brother died at the stadium, said the phrases "karma" and "what goes around comes around" were used by some rival fans who claimed Hillsborough was "God's punishment" for the Heysel disaster in which 39 mostly-Juventus fans died at a match against Liverpool.

Jamie added that "we tried to get a lot of people to talk to us about this story, not one person wanted to come on and talk about Topshop/Topman in a derogatory light".
