Sports Direct is a one-stop shop for running clothes, athletic equipment, and...official merchandise of bands with a neo-Nazi lead singer who served 15 years for murdering a former bandmate?
For some reason, the United Kingdom's largest sports retailer was selling T-shirts from Burzum, a Norwegian black metal band whose lead singer is Varg Vikernes. Vikernes was released from jail in 2009 after serving a sentence of 15 years for murdering a former bandmate.
But the fun doesn't stop there. Last year, the self-professed neo-Nazi was convicted of "inciting racial hatred against Muslims and Jews." And in the twist that shows where Sports Direct fucked up the most, he was found guilty of burning down churches in 1993—the T-shirt that the store was selling until today depicts a church that Vikernes was accused of incinerating.
Dazed reports that Sports Direct has yet to release an official statement, but it's pretty safe to say that someone from that outfit is going to have to dust off their resume tomorrow.
