What would you think of a 6 year old girl wearing a "Achmed the dead terrorist" T-shirt, what would you think?

It's a black shirt, and has a picture of Achmed on it and says, " I keel you!"

What would you think and would you let your very young child wear one in public?

  • Achmed's the bomb!!

    (sorry, couldn't resist the bad pun...but I really do love Achmed)

    I wouldn't let her wear it out. She doesn't know or understand the humor, and wouldn't understand people making faces at her. But...I would let her wear it aroung the house or as a sleep shirt.

  • OP here....................boy I really over used "what do you think" didn't I? LOL

    My husband and teenager when to a Jeff Dunham show recently and brought back the T-shirt for my 6 year old. My whole family thinks Achmed is hillarious.
    I'm just wondering if it's okay for a 6 year old to wear?

  • hell NO! Yes, it is funny as a joke for older people. Not a 6 year old. A 6 year old should not know that exists. And yes, I have actually seen the comedian doing several skits with Achmed.

  • I'm not being stupid but what is Achmed,I don't what it is so I couldn't pass judgement,and if,I knew what it was I still would not pass judgement.

  • I personally would not let my child (who is now 15) wear it. No offense intended truly, but I just can't see offending any type of people based on their race. That's just me....I'm sure everyone might feel their own ways.
