STATEN ISLAND, New York (WNB) - Supporters of a 400-pound man who died while being arrested last week are condemning a clothing line featuring his now-famous last words.
Tee shirts from controversial apparel company Thugfail went on sale Saturday bearing the phrase "I can't breathe - quit farting!", prompting the angry outcry.
"That just ain't right, doing that with his words," said protester LaQueefa Williams. "And if he did say that he was kidding - everybody know that."
Thugfail CEO Scooter Van Neuter defended the design, saying, "We're pretty sure he did say that. These shirts are available in all popular sizes and make a great Christmas gift."
