This St. Patrick's Day 'Drunk Lives Matter' Shirt Is Stirring A Lot Of Controversy


For most Americans, St. Patrick's Day is a day for getting blackout drunk and telling everyone exactly what percentage Irish you are. So, yeah, it's a pretty annoying holiday.

Amazon has come under fire for selling apparel for St. Patrick’s Day featuring the slogan “Drunk Lives Matter.” The t-shirt references the anti-racism movement, "Black Lives Matter," that started in 2012, following the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. It was founded by three community organizers: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi, to organize and raise awareness for racism and structural inequalities.
