L.A. Hipsters Ironically Smash Urban Outfitters Glass Door During Black Friday Madness
Black Friday madness isn't just for big box stores: this year overeager Urban Outfitters shoppers wreaked havoc at an "overrated" sale in Santa Monica.Shoppers rushing into the store on the Third Street promenade smashed a tall glass door when the store opened around midnight, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The store was briefly shut down while the broken glass was cleaned up. Paramedics responded to the scene where they treated five people for cuts, but no one had to be transported to the hospital.
An Urban Outfitters store manager declined to comment for the Times.
Sgt. Marty Fine of the Santa Monica Police Department told the Times: "It was just too many people, too fast."
And because this was Urban Outfitters, there's a lot of testimony on Twitter to the madness and how the sale was overrated anyway:
