Even the French Are Afraid of the Hells Angels

Categories: WTF?
As of late the Hells Angels have been making headlines for the streak violence that's left a few members dead in an intriguing feed among rival motorcycle gangs. Needless to say some Angels have not taken kindly to the recent press -- even we received some not-so-friendly notes from local Hells Angels unhappy with our coverage.

And while we wouldn't dare mess with a pissed-off Hells Angel, what we wouldn't mind watching is a stand off between the French and a member of the rough and tough motorcycle gang.

But it turns out, even the seemingly fearless French are shaking in their boots over the Hells Angels. According to New York blogger Copyranter, Herezie, a French ad agency, asked him to remove their ad for unbreakable glass frames that Copyranter had reposted. Apparently, the company realized that taunting the Hells Angels put their client in a precarious situation.

So the agency e-mailed Copyranter the following message this morning:

After several comments on blogs and in order to avoid any potential troubles with the Hell's Angels organization in the USA, Essilor USA is asking to withdraw the "Airwear lenses Unbreakable" print from blogs and websites. Please, it would be more than appreciated if you could do so.Thanks a lot for your understanding and your help.

Best regards,
Herezie agency
To which copyranter responded:

Dear Herezie,

No.

@Kevin: It's a repost of an ad, so it's actually a model wearing the shirt for the ad. I think it's hilarious, and good on the blogger for refusing to take it down! If the Hell's Angels are so immature that they would actually commit violence on someone for wearing a shirt, I would just say to them, 'grow the f--- up!'
