The store isn't backing down. They issued a press release on their website that states:
"Yesterday an American Apparel store in Silver Spring, Maryland had a window broken by someone upset over the company's support for gay marriage. Our Georgetown location and others in the areas have received similar threats. We just wanted to use this forum here to announce that not only are they not going to prevent us from speaking out on an issue that is important to this company and our employees but we'll continue to run Legalize Gay advertisements in papers across the DC-Metro area. We'll also send Legalize Gay t-shirts to any group in Washington DC that is fighting for gay rights and will help support any protest or rally for the cause. We don't find this kind of thing funny and we definitely don't find it intimidating."
Please take a moment to tell American Apparel that you support their stance on equality. You can leave a comment on their website by clicking here or visiting http://www.americanapparel.net/presscenter/dailyupdate/dailyUp.asp?d=48&t=1807.
