New York Senator Eric Adams is receiving a lot of backlash for Stop the Sag campaign, especially from the fashion industry.
Even Obama thinks it’s a waste of time way before this whole campaign started! He told MTV before winning the election:
“Here is my attitude: I think people passing a law against people wearing sagging pants is a waste of time.…Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants. You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What’s wrong with that? Come on. There are some issues that we face, that you don’t have to pass a law, but that doesn’t mean folks can’t have some sense and some respect for other people and, you know, some people might not want to see your underwear — I’m one of them.”
What do U think? Is the saggy pants campaign a waste of time (and money)???
