Ben Simmons t-shirt designs outside of the Wells Fargo Center have gone too far
To the parking lot t-shirt sellers, it’s time we have a talk. I have written more than a few articles about the antics that happen outside of the Wells Fargo Center this year. We had the one guy having sex with a headless Ben Simmons piñata and a bunch more completely missing the irony of them dressing up like actual clowns.
From there, we had Keith Pompey suggest that there were barriers put up around the Sixers entrance to protect Ben Simmons from “outraged fans”, which was also confirmed to be false. Pompey has since deleted his tweets. We have to draw the line somewhere and return to a more civilized society while attending 76ers games.
I know. Trust me. I KNOW. There are so many people here that just can’t pull themselves together after Ben Simmons hurt their feelings over the last five plus months. He made me upset too. However, the 76ers are playing great basketball and are off to a 6-2 start over their first eight games. Everyone is playing great on both sides of the floor. The team vibes are immaculate. Everything is awesome.
We have to move on and draw the line somewhere. I’ve been debating on where that line should actually go, then I saw a picture of this guy selling penis Ben Simmons shirts outside the Wells Fargo Center.
Listen. As a t-shirt guy myself, I have zero issues with people buying Ben Simmons “clown” or “missing” t-shirts. They’re great. We sell them as well at The Liberty Line so the ones that got their feelings hurt by Simmons can walk around proudly wearing a t-shirt to really show Ben Simmons who’s the real boss in the city of Philadelphia. More power to you and thank you for buying t-shirts. This one specifically, cannot continue to make its rounds in the parking lot.
First and foremost, who approved this design? You have a picture of hairy balls with Ben Simmons face as the shaft and a bizarre haircut up to to resemble the head of a dick. Wow. How nice. I would have went a million other ways besides a Ben looking like a big old dick. Secondly, is there a market for this type of design? Which one of you bought a Ben Dick shirt outside of the Wells Fargo Center? Are you now walking around with a dick on your t-shirt. If anything, I could see some people wearing this because they wish they had Ben Simmons dick, as their own, or….you know what never mind. Forget it.
Parking lot peddlers do come in handy sometimes. If you’re at an Eagles game and it’s cold, they always roll up with some warm beanies, gloves, or even a hoodie for an extra layer. You can also barter with these folks and typically walk away with a pretty solid deal. However, the Ben Dick shirts need to go. Inappropriate and I doubt anyone would actually wear one.
Check out our shop and see a bunch of t-shirt designs that are not Ben Dick shirts. We dropped this one today.
Thanks for your time.
