Waste's frontman Tony Foresta told Noisey about the praise, or lack thereof his shirt received, and said he was surprised about how many folks were angry at them for making the shirts in the first place.

"It's kind of crazy. We're making so much money off of it that we might actually turn into Republicans! Okay, not really, but it's selling pretty good. A lot of people don't like that guy. I've been reading some of the comments from people that are "shocked" that we would say something bad about Trump. We talked about killing George Bush on our first freaking album!…I know 80 percent of our Waste songs are about drinking and all, but I swear, there's some content in there, dammit!"

Well, the story is maybe a little more complicated than that. Daniel Podolsky was one of many people who picked up the shirt at Comedy Central's SXSW event. When he hopped on his flight home, he was told he would have to cover up or remove the offending shirt for the sake of other passengers before taking off. 

It's at this point that Podolsky escalates the issue and refused, leading to what can only be described as a titanic battle between corporate drone crone-iness and rampant pissant-ism. What happens when a tyrannical, mindless corporate travel agency is matched up against an ass who won't betray his principles for the sake of Getting This Damn Plane in the Air? Well, something like this.

Was anyone really in the wrong here? Does Southwest need to lighten up or this guy get his act together? Let us know in the comments!
