‘Bloody’ Northwestern Uniforms Causing Outrage
EVANSTON, Ill. (WRIC)—Northwestern University has designed patriotic
football uniforms, in partnership with Under Armour, to raise funds for the
Wounded Warrior Project. Instead, the apparel has offended the people it was
intended to honor.
The uniform, which will be worn during a Nov. 16 game, is causing controversy
because its red stripes appear to be bleeding.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization that works to
empower injured veterans. Later this month, Northwestern players will auction
off their patriotic jerseys, and all proceeds will go to charity.
According to SB Nation, the Under Armour said, "The Northwestern University
football uniforms designed by Under Armour in support of Wounded Warrior
Project feature an authentic distressed pattern, which depicts a flag that has flown
proudly over a long period of time."
