Under Armour’s ‘Wounded Warrior’ Uniform Design Draws Criticism
Wahat? Why? Those rocked.
EVANSTON, Ill. (CBSDC/AP) — Northwestern University is apologizing for any misconceptions about the uniforms its football team plans to wear while playing the University of Michigan Wolverines Nov. 16.
The Wildcats will trade their familiar purple for red, white and blue duds, designed by the Maryland-based athletic clothing Under Armour.
The special uniforms are meant to honor the Wounded Warrior Project, which supports wounded service members. The Under Armour jerseys with the stars and stripes will be auctioned off after the game, with all proceeds going to the Project.
However, the design has stirred up some controversy since some have said it appears to feature blood stains.
Northwestern spokesman Paul Kennedy said Monday it’s a “distressed pattern on both the stars and stripes that was inspired by the appearance of a flag that has flown proudly over a long period of time.” He also apologized “for any misinterpretation.”
