Love will tear us apart again

Apparently Mickey Mouse loves Joy Division. I kid you not.

The goth world is divided on whether this shirt is genius or blasphemy.

Liz Ohanesian, writer for LA Weekly, tweets that she thinks “they are kind of cute.”  While Liisa Ladouceur, author of “Encyclopedia Gothica” tweets it is “[w]rong.”

In any event, it doesn’t matter anymore. As of a few hours ago, according to Pitchfork reports, Disney has removed all shirts from its shelves because Disney “became aware there could be an issue” and they needed “to review the situation further.”

What does this mean? These shirts are now selling on eBay for more than $100.

  1. I don’t love the t-shirt. I love the video.

  2. Love will tear us apart still tears me up all these years later. When Ian Curtis died throughout urban Britain, these posters in his memory started turning up on poles everywhere. These days we have Twitter but those poles stick in my memory.

  3. I like the shirt too as it is unexpected mix of pop culture with a bit of darkness.
