There's a massive protest going on outside a store called Reserve (brand Freshjive's flagship) over some controversial shirts. "The Jewish Defense League (JDL) is responding to the streetwear label's T-shirts, depicting Palestinian child soldiers with the word 'Victimized' on it, as well as a shirt with Arafat with 'The Good Ol' Days!' scrolling at the bottom of the tee." Apparently, "The JDL was 'storming up and down the sidewalk with picket signs, bullhorns, and an artillery of verbal warfare...belligerently claiming [Freshjive CEO] Rick [Klotz] hates Jews, support Muslims, and is gay.'"
