Kenneth Cole Puns off Guns

by Sterling Beard

Fashion designer Kenneth Cole has attempted to pun off firearm deaths.

When asked on Twitter “What can we do to amplify a campaign for gun control?” Cole answered:

This isn’t the first time that Cole’s made an attempt at topical word play. Less than a month ago, Cole joked that the situation in Syria might require “boots on the ground,” but urged readers “not forget about sandals, pumps and loafers.” He tried the same shtick back in 2011 when he tweeted about the Arab Spring in Egypt, jesting that millions were in an uproar in Cairo because they had heard his company’s spring collection was online.
