Outrage After Urban Outfitters Makes A “Closet Tranny” Joke On A Gag Card

Urban Outfitters is the latest organization to be slammed with a Trannygate scandal: Yes, we already knew Urban was a company that hates the gayseven Miley Cyrus is up on the fact that owner Richard Haynes donates to Santorum.

Still, this is a new stain on their brand of hipsterwear.

A “funny-ha-ha” gag gift card, which has been pulled from their website after Internet outrage bubbled up on Reddit yesterday, reads:

“Jack and Jill / Went up the Hill / So Jack could see Jill’s fanny / But Jack got a shock / And an eyeful of cock / Because Jill was a closet tranny.”

It’s something your mom might chuckle at without realizing that it’s offensive to transgender people. Couldn’t they have found something different to rhyme with “fanny” than “tranny”?
