Bigots & Baseball Caps

Intolerance comes in many forms but the very worst kind is middle class hypocrisy

 

In a week when Damien Hirst was told: “Go home!” by animal rights activists in Venice (who also dumped 40kg of dung outside where he is due to exhibit a non-animal related show at the Palazzo Grassi), I, myself, experienced the wrath of a middle class maniac.

 

On Saturday, minding my own business, walking along a quiet South Kensington street, I was accosted by a well-dressed woman. She screeched at me: “Take that hat off. It promotes terrorism”.

 

My crime? Wearing a William Evans baseball cap. The reasoning for her distaste? The cap was captioned: “Gun and rifle makers, 1883”.

 

After I responded to this ridiculous individual by telling her: “I can wear whatever I wish” and she had had her chance to rant about about intolerance and extremism, I realized one sorry thing: Here, in front of me, stood was nothing but the worst kind of bigot.

 

William Evans signature baseball caps are available for £25. Wear one at your peril.

  1. Sigh. It just said “Makers 1883”. It’s not as though it said “Soon to be user 2017”.
    To thine own self be true, Matthew, keep wearing what the heck you want (except leggings on planes, apparently, according to last week’s news).

  2. Leaving aside the fact that Hirst is a bit of con artist I often wear leggings when flying. Margaret, live and let live
