Sisters kicked out of mall for wearing ‘F*** Cancer’ hats

Sister Zakia and Tasha Clarke recently lost their mother, Jackie Underwood, to breast cancer at age 51.

Ever since the two sisters have been donning hats that say “Fu** Cancer.”

“That’s how we feel. It took our mom away. It’s a demon. It’s the devil,” Zakia told the Philadelphia Daily News. “There are no other words you can use to explain how you feel. You want cancer to get cancer and die.”

Zakia and Tasha wore the hats when they went shopping for funeral dresses at the King of Prussia Mall on Sunday.

While at the food court they were approached by a security guard who told them to take the hats off immediately.

Tasha refused asking the security guard to show her “something in writing.”

Then the girls were ordered to leave the mall and the guard called for backup. That is when seven additional security guards showed up and the two girls were escorted to the mall office where they met by a police officer.

Zakia said the police officer said, “I find it offensive that you even have that hat that says ‘Fu** CANCER.”

“He said, ‘It’s their mall, they want you out, you have to get out,’” Zakia said.

The Associated Press reached the King of Prussia Mall manager, Robert Hall, who said he stands by the decision to kick the girls out of the mall. He clams the sister violated the code of conduct by displaying profanity.

The girls’ other sister, Makia, who was not wearing a hat, told ABC 6 that there are multiple stores in the mall that sell t-shirts with profanity.

The sisters plan on putting their caps back on and protesting outside the mall Thursday night.
