This T-Shirt Is A Big 'Eff You' To The Papparazzi & Kate Moss Just Wore It
Being a celebrity isn’t an easy gig, particularly given that it’s pretty tough to maintain a sense of normalcy and privacy with your every move being watched by the world. All it takes is a quick look at Justin Bieber and Cara Delevingne’s angry posts on social media about being hounded relentlessly by the paparazzi to figure out that it’s not all sunshine and daisies.
However, for all the celebs struggling with having a camera shoved in their face as they take a casual stroll down to their local shops, there’s now an awesome t-shirt that they can wear, and it’s a massive “EFF YOU” to the papz.
The t-shirt—which has been dubbed the ‘ANTI shirt’—at first glance appears to be your everyday black tee. However, the magic happens when the flash from a camera goes off, revealing the sassy AF hidden message, “F*CK YOU C*NT.”
Straight and to the point. We like it.
The t-shirt was the result of fashion photographer Nick Knight’s outrage at seeing supermodel Kate Moss struggling with the paparazzi.
“The idea for the shirt came from the sense of outrage I felt after seeing footage of a pack of male paparazzi pursuing, hounding, and terrorising Kate Moss and her baby daughter at LAX airport in Los Angeles to the point where they reduced her to hiding under her suitcase as they relentlessly photographer her. The ANTI-T-shirt says loud and clear what was probably on her mind,” Knight said.
Knight also filmed Kate giving a quick modelling run-down about how the t-shirt works in a short video posted to his SHOWstudio Instagram account.
EXCLUSIVE: Kate Moss and @Nick_Knight unite to create the ANTI-T-SHIRT! This addition to our e-shop is a t-shirt masterminded by Knight and modelled by #KateMoss. The limited edition piece features wording that is visible only during flash photography, and was inspired by Knight's experiences watching friends pursued relentlessly by the paparazzi. Visit SHOWstudio to watch Moss model our new limited edition t-shirt! Link in bio.
Now that Kate has hopped on the bandwagon, there’s no doubt that we’ll see other celebs metaphorically flipping the bird to the paparazzi as they rock their ANTI-Tshirt out and about.
