This Dude Showed Up To Coachella With An 'Eat Sleep Rape Repeat' T-Shirt

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Someone snapped a photo of a guy at Coachella, whose shirt is a play on the phrase "Eat Sleep Rave Repeat." Except it says "rape" instead of "rave." Get it? We have not spotted the T-shirt with our own eyes to confirm that this isn't photoshopped, however, another Coachella attendee said that she spotted the same T-shirt. We could spend some time googling "rape culture," we could take a woman's studies class, but I don't think we'd be any closer to answering the question she asks: "what the actual fuck?"
