Sub Pop Employee Tussles With Hate Speech

Posted by on Thu, Jun 14, 2012 at 3:01 PM

This from Sub Pop's director of film and TV licensing, Lacey Swain:

"This is 100% truth: As I was parallel parking my car downtown I bumped the car to my rear, and I also noticed that the driver was in the car. This kind of incident has gone extremely poorly for me in the past, so I gave a little 'I'm sorry' wave and gathered my things and exited the car prepared to get into yet another fight on the street with an irate and unreasonable stranger. Instead, I look over to see that the car in question is some sort of mid makeover Fast Five type car with black primer, with a tiny, bug-eyed kid behind the wheel furiously texting. Just as I am about to give the 'my bad' wave one more time and mouth 'I'm so sorry' to him, I see that he has, written in the primer dust on the hood of the car, in all caps, mind you, the always hilarious phrase NO FAT CHICKS ALLOWED."

Furiously texting.

You know for a fact this kid wrote that on his vehicle himself, or did you just run out of real things to be mad about today?

Nice to see this called what it is, for a change: hate speech.

@ 3 - So, it's somehow 'okay' if someone other than the driver wrote this?

i once had someone ask if my dog was pregnant. my response was "nope, she's just fat." i laughed for about a half hour on that.
