The retailer quickly pulled the shirt after controversy started around it and also let customers know that it didn’t make the shirt. Instead, Urban Outfitters alerted people to the fact that the shirt was made by a smaller clothing line named Depression, reports The New York Daily News.

Kenny Lim, who co-founded Depression, says that his clothing line makes “Happy clothes” and that the shirt was misunderstood, The New York Daily News notes.

“It was the first and only time we have our logo printed across the shirt. The logo t-shirt was originally a men’s t-shirt that was sold in Singapore for our fans,” Lim told Fashionista. “It was sold out very quickly. Urban Outfitters had requested for the same style in a women’s cropped top.”
