Selling weird t-shirt’s has become all the rage I guess.

Just yesterday we saw that Penn State was selling a commemorative t-shirt which celebrated their victory over Syracuse University, the same Syracuse who went 8-5 last year. Because, hey, that needs to be commemorated.

But I’m thinking somebody in Pittsburgh might have just topped that one.

According to No Guts, No Glory, somebody in the Pittsburgh area is making a mint by selling shirts that read, “New England: we used to be cheaters, now we’re murders”.

The shirt is reportedly being sold in a store named ‘Yinzers’.

Now, I get on the surface that somebody thought they probably had a good idea to mock the hated Patriots, though, it’s quickly forgetting that somebody did lose their life in this event.

So what do you think? Fair or foul on the shirt?

I’m sure whomever came up with the idea wasn’t thinking in a malicious way, rather just wanting to mock the Patriots and Aaron Hernandez, but it does come across relatively tasteless considering the circumstances.
