Morrissey needs to go sit in a corner and think about his actions. He also needs to fire his entire team, because it seems like no one told him it would be a bad idea to sell racist, tone deaf t-shirts with James Baldwin on them.

Sure, "I wear black on the outside because black is how I feel on the inside," may be a lyric from The Smiths' track 'Unlovable'. But pairing the words with an image of James Baldwin's face - a writer and activist - gives the line a whole new meaning and also makes Morrissey stupid as hell if he thought people weren't going to get pissed.

He's selling the t-shirt on his upcoming North American tour. We recommend not purchasing, especially if you're a white man - like Morrissey.
