T-shirt producers are making a killing of their own over the death of Osama bin Laden. New Yorker Maurice Harary made $120,000 in two days selling T-shirts he printed up saying “Bin Laden is Dead,” the New York Post
The quick-thinking entrepreneur started producing the shirts as soon as he heard that the al-Qaida leader had been killed on Sunday.
He set up a website, which he says went online at 3:30 a.m. on Monday, less than five hours after President Barack Obama had made the announcement of the terrorist’s death, and sold 10,000 of the $12 shirts by Tuesday.
Harary is not alone in making a buck from the mission. Café Press has a range of T-shirts with slogans including “SEAL Team 6,” “We Got Him” “Obama 1 Osama 0” and “Goodbye Osama! Thank You U.S. Military!” among others.
And Road Kill T-Shirts has “Hey Obama, Tell Saddam We Said Hello,” “Obama Bin Shot,” and “Mission Accomplished 5/01/2011.”
