“Boo Bees” T-Shirt Sparks Protests and Fear of the Mob
Parents are outraged over this t-shirt being sold at a boutique that targets tweens and teens, but are afraid to complain to the store because they're scared of Mafia retaliation.
Parents are upset over the double entendre the t-shirt suggests and even go as far as saying the stingers on the bees look like nipples. The mom interviewed in a New York Post article admits she's afraid to go protest in person at the store because the owner, the sister of "Big Ang" Raiola became a reality sensation on Mob Wives. She fears that Big Ang or someone connected to the mafia would come after her for protesting.
Originally, the owner insisted the t-shirt wasn't supposed to be a play on words and was merely Halloween branding for the BEEtween Boutique. However, since the controversy began she's decided to donate 10% of the proceeds from the shirt to the Breast Cancer Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
