Sure, blame Hugo.

So Danny Glover is joining up with the Workers United labor union in calling for a boycott of Hugo Boss at the Oscars. Turns out everyone's favourite design house with a dark militaristic past is about to shut down a Cleveland plant, laying off 375 workers. A noble sentiment, we suppose, but our reactions to this were: (1) Those American-made Boss suits came from f**king CLEVELAND??? (2) Didn't this lightweight moralist used to hang out with noted Nazi Mel Gibson? (3) Aren't there a lot more clothing companies we could pick on for never making anything in the USA in the first place? and (4) Well, screw it, we're going to retaliate by not watching the Oscars... oh, wait, we were already on that plan.
