"It's insensitive" to victims: NC nonprofit rejects proposed donations from sales of snarky t-shirt, saying message trivializes gun violence.
"The director of the N.C. Victims Assistance Network said she asked Tuesday for the nonprofit to be disassociated from the public pledge by a Durham-based entrepreneur to donate a portion of the proceeds of controversial T-shirt to the nonprofit. Runaway clothing design company founder Gabe Eng-Goetz had said in an online post recently that he planned to donate a portion of the sale proceeds from 'I’d rather be shot in Durham than die of boredom in Cary' T-shirt to the nonprofit." -- Laura Oleniacz, the Durham Herald-Sun
