There is shitty, and then there is shittyness disguised a philanthropy.
I Love Boston Sports is a t-shirt company that has over 267,000 Facebook followers. And as you can see, they hoarded a bunch of life saving masks and are now holding them hostage until you buy one of their shitty, overpriced t-shirts that capitalizes on cheap slogan from a tragedy that happened seven years ago. You have to be a special kind of asshole to do something like that.
Their owner, Mahlon Williams, has gotten tons of free advertising and positive coverage from the media too.

If you live in the Boston area, you’ve probably heard of or seen @bostonsportsco apparel. But, did you know the brand is owned by a #WheatonMAalum!?

He also got called out by Dave Portnoy for ripping off his Free Brady shirts, then whining to the Globe that Barstool Sports ripped off him.
Mahlon sells shitty, ugly, cliche, overpriced t-shirts for a living apparently.
And he’s not afraid to capitalize on a tragedy.
He’s been using the commie cold to sell his crappy, generic, poorly done shirts for a while now, while presenting himself as the leader of some sort of fight against the deadly disease.
Imagine seeing a bunch of tragedies and the first thing that comes to your mind is, “how can I make money off of this?”
Mahlon rightfully took a lot of shit from his followers and made it a million times worse by attempting to justify his actions.
You’ve been in contact with medical professionals who told you to buy 1,050 masks, and only donate them to hospital if people buy your stupid Boston Strong shirts? How bout hooking them up with your mask dealer instead? Oh right, because then you don’t get to use a tragedy to sell merch.
He also said that he “spoke with the chief of Boston EMS” who happens to be his neighbor.
So you know he’s legit now.
When people rightfully questioned his motives he pulled a “why aren’t you buying masks,” to a first responder nonetheless.
“Signed. Someone who puts his money where his mouth is.”
Bitch, you’re profiting off of this. You’re not donating shit. No one wanted to buy your shitty t-shirts, so you bought a bunch of masks and said you’d donate them if people bought a shirt, because you knew that people would be more willing to pay money to help stop the spread of the commie cold than they would by to buy a shirt. He made that clear over and over again.
“Selling a shirt helps finance our ability to get more.”
Maybe then you’re not the right person to be donating masks to hospitals since you clearly cannot afford to do so. Maybe you should leave that to billionaires like Bob Kraft, or even the government whose job it is to guide us through this crisis.
Bitch, you didn’t “donate” shit. You held them hostage until someone bought a t-shirt.
Dude LOVES to let you know about his philanthropy.
The best part about raising money is when you tell people about all the money you raised.
The bottom line is that there are shortages of these masks, and if you know a guy who can get you a good deal then you should probably alert the governor’s office because they’re depending on Bob Kraft at the moment. If you use a ploy like this to sell your shitty shirts because no one would buy them otherwise, it doesn’t make you a good person. And all your bullshit and Facebook PR spin isn’t gonna change that.

At least make up your own phrases for your ugly wear. Something like I survived the Wu-flu. Don’t steal Boston logos. And the masks just needed to be given to hospitals. Nobody should have to buy your shit for you to be a good person and help protect the people your going to need in a week to save your ass. That’s sickening. I wouldn’t support your business. Now if I read an article saying you donated 1000 masks to people who are putting their lives on the line for us then I would more than likely come support your business. Just saying. It’s not always about money. I know we’re all hurting I get it but be a decent fukn human and maybe more good will come your way
wow that shirt is gay. I’ll fight anyone who wears it.
What a disgusting use of #Bostonstrong. You don’t deserve the privilege of using that hashtag. It has ONE meaning and ONE meaning only. You are NOT Big Papi.
—— FUCK YOU SCUMBAG——
How are so many spear-chuckers walking around with enough paper to monopolize shit like this, and how are they getting enough of a connect to find supply? Through their drug dealers?
The Trump Administration has made it so we have the lowest black unemployment in history. Start there.
Ya’ll only pickin on me cuz I’m black. Ya’ll some racist crackas up in here. Nothin hype bout axing for peeps to buy some dope Beeztown gear – not hurtin no one up in the cut. On the straight. Even giving out maskasiss to hopsituls once my brand gets bumpin – fo tru. For all the haters, check yourself. I ani’t got that privilege like The Man – gots ta get mines.
I’m afraid this virus is going to end up killing too many of the wrong people and not enough of the RIGHT ones… like this bottom-feeder. If nothing else, maybe there’s going to be some laws passed against hoarding and profiteering for the next super plague.
He’ll play the race card in 3…..2……
The independent T-shirt industry/game has become quite lucrative over the last 10 years.. Although I’d say most are good people, there’s a few of them that have pulled some clear, blatant greedy stunts.. this guy just topped the list.
Also, look at this guy looking all high and mighty and shit in these photos.. I’m no business expert, but that looks like a simple, easy business to run, and he just fucked it all up. Idiot.
Who do you think you are profiting off tragedies? Mark Wahlberg?
Real sketchy move to “donate” N95s with the purchase of his crap T-shirts. Have to admit, he does have a lot of talent, talent for making the ugliest most cliched shirts out there. Does he pay royalties to use the images of sports teams and players shown on his garbage collection of retard-wear…
If someone stole all of this jerk’s masks and donated them to the hospitals and first responders, what might Rachel Rollins do? No prosecution because it’s non-violent, right? Wrong, minority “victim”, mandatory prosecution. Jemele Hill would agree.
I am currently walking around my neighborhood enforcing the shelter in place rules. If I catch you I will record you and notify the authorities!
Wheaton grads= WOPES. ( Wheaton Dopes) Careful he will roll up into a little black snowball and claim racism before the masks arrive.
This jackass saw restaurants that actually gave a free roll of tp with orders and thought…”I’ll one up that! There is a shortage of mask. I’ll donate for every purchase”
But here’s the difference jackass…those masks are a life saving NECESSITY and restaurants doing the tp thing was more a joke and they certainly didnt raise the price of their food.
Everyone should sink this business. What a piece of shit!
Let me get this straight, this guy is essential and can do business. But, the scratch cookeries feeding the people healthier options than fast food chains ARE NOT essential…
Just keep it simple, there’s a million honorable legit stores everywhere , Who the fuck would deal. with this porch monkey ??????
People who make ugly shirts shouldn’t shoot t-shirt guns, glass house….
Whatever, you get it.
Marky mark. 3:16
“Let he without an ugly t-shirt cast the first stone kehd.”
Never understood why folks need to wear clothing with logos on them.wait now I remember it’s so they get attention.
Thank you Mahlon! Such a selfless act! He is truly a credit to his race!
Interesting behaviors.Very crafty.
What’s more racist: calling out this asshole as an asshole- or selling WHITE masks??
So for every t shirt he sells he more than likely profits (I’m guessing) around $12 -$15. He donates a mask he probably paid $2.00- $4.00 for back when they were cheaper (now over $5)
and probably still makes over $10 a shirt. Ten bucks times over 1000 shirts equals over 10k profit for him. Add to that he gets to build up his phony ,community do gooder facade.
The most charitable act would be to donate the shirts to a dumpster
SHIT EATING APE! FUCKING MONEY BABBOON DINDU NIG!!!!
oh my, take your meds you fucking sperm sponge
the better thing to do would have been to donate the 1000 masks and let the news do a story on you and your company. Or even better yet do the right thing and donate them to help our first responders and be proud of yourself you fucking douchnozzle. tou call yourself a businessman, but your not. your scum just like the rest of your family. I hope you fall down on a cock.
Not sure bout that last sentence, but gave you a thumbs up anyway
Free piece of advice:
Never do business with the blacks
What charity does TB support with every piece of merch. sold?
I thought so. It’s just OTHER people who should donate their money.
Boston Strong. pfftt! what a fucking joke- WTF is this? Every thing gets a t-shirt now to make everyone feel better? Look at me Im Boston Strong!! Cower in place Boston strong, cower in place!
At least the shirts are cheaper than black market TP
What have you donated TB?
How come yall aint supportin each other by doin drivebys.
I would have thought atleast another driveby by now for lil homie who was featured a few days sgo.
For every cheeseburger this fat monkey buys we will spit on it and add extra bacon.
