Nordstrom Banned Moschino’s Drug-Themed Collection, Because Boring

+

After reportedly thousands of customer complaints, Nordstrom has officially pulled Moschino’s spring 2017 capsule collection. The madness all started last week, when a drug counselor from Minnesota launched an online petition asking high-end retailers like Nordstrom and Saks to the pill-themed pieces off their sales floor, or face a customer boycott.

“These accessory items you are choosing to market and sell to the public for profit, which include the Chain-Strap Prescription Bottle Bag and Printed Backpack, will most likely promote more drug use,” the petition says. “Do you have any idea of the message your company is sending to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one due to a drug overdose? Have you not seen the countless number of media reports on overdose deaths from prescription pain medication, including the rock and roll icon Prince?”

Nordstrom has since responded, telling Fortune: “We appreciate all the constructive feedback we received from concerned customers and ultimately decided to remove the collection from our site and the three stores where we offered it.”

So boring.
