Re: Mad Manson

Woot does not allow celebrity likenesses, but this might pass, since the nose blocks some of the face.

But Manson posing as a clown? That's a little too creepy for me.

Hey, why was this rejected? Celebrity likeness? Hard to say what "nope. absolutely not." means.

/edit - re: Mad Manson.

Too graphic, celebrity likeness, photo... Or maybe Woot just thought it went too far. I do fully expect to see this for sale at Spencer Gifts some day, tho.

I would take it to mean that they absolutely will not print anything resembling Manson. Woot has a pretty strict moral code. Not always in line with what other people would call out, but there are certain things that they'll never go for.

interesting. it'd be nice to have a little more of this information before making a design. any suggestions on what to avoid for the future? I'm still pretty new to this.

Hitler(and all Help! Help! I'm being oppressed! related images), Jesus/God typically is avoided, toilet humor, real murderers/rapists, abuse to children or animals (see a rejected shirt this week), yadda yadda.

Sometimes there's a rejected design on the grounds of it being too Bloody, but that's a fickle reason and you are safe to take your chances with a little blood.

But yeah, Manson or anyone who was terrifying to the general populace typically isn't allowed.
