Not much Ed Hardy love

You can get all kinds of love on facebook, but it is just as easy for people to set up a passionate hate page against a brand or a famous person. Along those lines, Ed Hardy is actually a not so famous tattoo artist and also a brand popularized by designer Christian Audigier. Audigier licenced the name Ed Hardy and some of his tattoo art for t-shirts and other items, but previously he was the head designer of Von Dutch, another brand that counts on the herd instinct of people. Basically both brands push their logos on rappers and other celebrities and hope that the average Joe will get inspired. But some folks were inspired to create an anti Ed Hardy fan page on facebook that is growing swiftly. "Thanks to Ed Hardy I recognize morons right away."

  3. Maybe the people who started it took it down. If facebook doesn't stop/pull a group page that encourages people in cars to hit cyclists, surely they won't stop/pull a page that makes fun of a brand.
