Wolcott middle school bans cat shirt

Posted: Updated:
WOLCOTT, CT (WFSB) -

A middle school in Wolcott has banned a shirt promoting a popular hip-hop group because of what the image depicts, according to an article in the Waterbury Republican-American.

According to the article, Tyrrell Middle School officials banned the shirt from the group OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All).

The image is of a cat with "hallow eyes and an upside cross on its forehead" with the words "Golf Wang", an anagram of the group's name, the article stated.

The Republican-American article said an email was sent to parents at the school and said the image is innocent looking, but "stands for something vile."
