Yeah, it's modified as fuck, but still.. I couldn't find shit on him actually being a Marine.
i wouldnt even call that modified, i'd call that a normal jacket with a marine patch on the arm.
I think it's pretty dumb when people put stripes on normal jackets. Closest thing I'd consider acceptable would be mini ribbons and maybe a lapel rank on a suit.
They should not wear rank unless they have earned it. I think the Marines should extend an invitation to Lupe to find out what it takes to earn it.
whatever, it's just clothing material (usually pretty shitty material, at least when it comes to AF uniforms).
what the uniform represents can't be counterfieted. just because some douche wears an old marine jacket or army blouse with rank or badges on it doesn't diminish the importance or substance of the uniform.
think of it this way - if you wear a sports jersey for your favorite team do you think the players on the team get all pissed because you haven't "earned" the right to wear it?
I don't wear sports jerseys that support any teams. I have a team jersey that I was given when I raced BMX. My whole team had the same name on our backs because the AA pro at the top of the team (well above us) had won yet another championship.
I don't own a jersey,
Athletes don't go to war.
bottom line is that there are a million other more important things to get spun up about than some douchebag's retarded sense of fashion.
heh, sometimes I really don't know how to approach someone like that because most of the time they just "don't know better" and then some dude just comes over all pissed off and gets in their face
....but yeah i hate those people who wear that shit
I'm not spun up, I just think the Marines should offer to teach him some respect for the uniform.
he's not wearing a uniform broly
He is wearing something that is specific, close enough... ...broly
Maybe he is wearing it out of respect. He might of never served in the military, but ever think his father, brother (if he has one) or close relative/friend has served/serving and possibly has even gotten hurt?
Not like he's wearing an E9 patch, he's wearing something that can be attained with no work at all and in a couple years or less. Hell you can make CPL without ever deploying after joining.
I take it as flattering, actually.
I doubt it's out of respect, I've seen a couple other hip hop and r & b artists wearing similar shit with other rank insignias and I think its pretty fucked up. I wouldn't put it past one of these geniuses to start parading around with a purple heart pinned to his chest or a medal of honor around his neck.
Yeah I wouldn't put that past them either.
a lot of people got all pissed about the part in "Wedding Crashers" with the purple heart
people need to relax and learn to worry about more important things. remember, you don't have some inherent right to go through life without being offended. if you don't like it, don't pay attention.
I didn't say I would care. Just said I wouldn't put it past them.
isnt it illegal though to wear a medal of honor you did not earn? even if one of them was stupid enough to try it, it wouldn't last more than one session where the public saw it.
all kinds of clothes nowadays come with military stuff on em. i have a pair of bilabong shorts that have like 5 ribbons on the cargo pocket, one of em like a meritorious service (which i obviously dont have). cant do much about it these days.
and even if he isn't wearing it out of respect I'm pretty sure he isn't wearing it out of hatred and disrespect for the military, at the very most he's just ignorant and think it looks cool (but then why pick an E4 badge?).
just like the bitch that got arrested the other day in one picture they showed she was wearing a 1st sgt. chevron
sorry that wasn't directed at you specifically
it just seems like every so often we get these threads, and there's always a bunch of people screaming about how they want to beat the shit out of people because they're wearing *insert uniform item here*
lol - Shaggy (Mr Boombastic) was a Specialist in the US Army during GW1 as a chemical specialist lol
wasn't he in the USMC?
