Tom Ford told to ‘rot in hell’ for gold penis shaped crucifix necklaces

On Thursday, December 18th, 2014

The Daily Front Row Second Annual Fashion Media Awards - ArrivalsFashion designer Tom Ford has created quite a stir and has some religious organizations completely outraged following the launch of his new collection of phallic necklaces.  According to the Huffington Post on Thursday, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has voiced their issues with the “penis pendant necklace,” calling the jewelry offensive and a “sick gambit.”

The controversial necklaces are being sold on Ford’s website and are selling for $790 a piece.  They are available in gold and silver and come in three different sizes: small, medium and large.  The Catholic League is appalled because the penis-shaped pendant appears to be in the shape of a cross.  Catholic League president and CEO Bill Donahue immediately attacked the 53-year-old fashion designer in a press release, calling him a homosexual (which he is), and mocking his married to journalist Richard Buckley.

Donahue continued his dismay over Ford’s latest jewelry in an email to The Huffington Post.  In the email he writes:

“A designer gets a little too cute with my religion at Christmas time, and uses sexual imagery to make a quick buck off of it.  Sounds like someone who is not exactly Catholic-friendly, and has some sexual hang-ups as well.  It doesn’t take a Ph.D. in profiling to guess just who might be behind this sick gambit.”

It didn’t stop with the anti-gay Catholic League.  Angry religious people took to Twitter to give Tom Ford a piece of their mind as well.  According to Gay Star News, social media users called the designer “sick” and told him to “rot in hell.”  One user went as far as to say Ford will be punished by God for “making that necklace.”  Ford, himself, has yet to respond to the controversy, but the noise it has already created may actually sell a few pieces.

About - Tarringo T. Vaughan always believed he had a love affair with literature. One of the first pictures he saw of himself was of him at maybe the age of three or four year’s old sitting with a book in his hand. But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
