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.

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.
