Scene from Cannes

[Trigger warning for Polanski shit.]

French director Xavier Beauvois shows his support for renowned child rapist Roman Polanski with a great t-shirt that is definitely the appropriate tone to make a statement on behalf of a fugitive from justice in a 30-year-old rape case, as long as he's made great art or whatever. Nothing says considered and principled position like a t-shirt that looks like it was made by a t-shirt shop at the local mall in the 1980s.

I believe the garment is from the Bernard-Henri Lévy 2010 collection, Rape Apologia in Black and White—because rape never goes out of fashion and defending rapists is all the rage at Cannes this year.
