YOGA PANTS RIOTS
63 year old Alan Sorrentino of Barrington, Rhode Island, USA wrote a letter to the local newspaper The Barrington Times criticising Yoga pants. Sorrentino wrote "Yoga pants can be adorable on children and young women. However, on mature, adult women there is something bizarre and disturbing about the appearance they make in public. Yuck!" The result was that 300 Angry Women protested outside his home and threatened to beat him and murder him. Sorrentino said "The reaction has been over the top crazy. I've received death threats. I have received threats, things about vandalizing the house.” He also received multiple threatening voicemails with messages like "We're showing up to your house, you fuck" and “you better watch your ass."
