Supreme is selling a T-shirt dedicated to women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct
There is officially less than a week until the 2018 midterm elections on November 6th. And the clothing brand Supreme is urging people to vote—by reminding followers of Donald Trump’s alleged sexual misconduct. The company’s new “18 & Stormy” T-shirt honors both Stormy Daniels and Trump’s accusers while raising money to get out the vote.
Today, November 1st, Supreme shared the shirt design on its Instagram page. In the post, the brand noted that the tee, designed by Richard Prince, depicts all 18 women who have accused Trump of sexual assault, as well as Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who he has repeatedly attempted to silence.
Supreme added that all proceeds from the “18 & Stormy” shirt will benefit Downtown for Democracy, a political action committee that works to engage artists in the democratic process. The shirt was released on Supreme’s web store today, but it is currently sold out. Once the design is back in stock, purchasing the “18 & Stormy” tee will cost you $ 40.
Supreme isn’t the first brand to fight back against the Trump administration. In June, Lipslut released a pink matte “F*ck Trump” lipstick to help families affected by the federal government’s zero-tolerance immigration policy. And Ben & Jerry’s recently created a flavor called Pecan Resist and donated money to four social justice groups in honor of its release.
Remember: The best way to resist the current administration is by voting, so make sure to cast your ballot in the 2018 midterms.

BEST DEAL UPDATE:
Android’s creator, Andy Rubin, received $ 90 million from Google to resign without fuss after the company found an accusation of forced oral sex by a former girlfriend and Google employee was credible, the New York Times has reported.
Google did not deny the story’s substance to the Times, and its CEO and HR chief told employees in email after the article appeared that 13 senior managers have been fired in the last two years for sexual harassment. None of them, they said, had received an “exit package” paid for agreeing to leave.
A personal spokesperson for Rubin denied the substance of the story to the Times, and said Rubin left of his own accord and did not engage in misconduct, nor have a relationship with a direct report or one that was other than consensual while at Google. Rubin and Google did not reply to requests for comment from Fortune.
The alleged incident that led to Rubin’s departure from Google involved a former romantic partner who worked in the Android division. In 2014 she told Google’s human resources department that, after she was no longer interested in the relationship, she had met with Rubin in a hotel room in 2013, according to the Times. She accused Rubin of then forcing her into oral sex, and she ended the relationship, the report says.
Rubin joined Google in 2005 with the acquisition of Android, a company he had co-founded, to build smarter mobile devices. According to the Times, Rubin engaged in multiple relationships with other Google employees. In 2009, he married one, Rie Rubin.
Rie Rubin filed for divorce May 24, 2017. Court filings show the divorce is not yet final. On Sept. 17, a court ordered Andy Rubin to pay nearly $ 80,000 a month in child support. Many aspects of the proceedings and filings were sealed because of minor children. (Andy Rubin hasn’t spoken publicly of children, and his ex-wife has mentioned them only in passing in an article about a now-closed bakery, and on social media.)
On Oct. 3, 2018, she filed a civil lawsuit against Andy Rubin. The case was temporarily sealed at Andy Rubin’s request on Oct. 11 until a hearing on Dec. 3. Rubin’s attorneys argued, among other points, that “journalists and others will publicize the allegations if allowed to learn of them.”
The Times report maintains that Larry Page, Google’s co-founder, encouraged Rubin within the company and felt Rubin hadn’t received enough compensation for his role in Android. This led to a $ 150 million stock grant issued in Sept. 2014, even after the sexual-assault investigation was underway. The Times reports that it was unclear if Page or the board knew of the investigation when the grant was approved.
However, Rubin was earlier passed over, in 2013, to run a combined Android and Chrome team. Sundar Pichai got the nod instead. Pichai went on to become Google’s CEO when the firm shifted to a holding company structure with Google as a separate division and crown jewel.
After the sexual assault allegation was reportedly found credible by Google, the Times says Page made the decision to push Rubin out. Rubin left in Oct. 2014.
Rubin went on to co-found a venture-capital firm, Playground and later founded a smartphone maker, Essential, which laid off part of its staff a few days ago after disappointing sales of its first phone model.
Rubin was briefly on a leave of absence from Essential after the news site The Information reported on a 2014 complaint at Google that appears to be one of the elements of the Times story. At the time, Rubin said the relationship was consensual and not someone in his managerial area.
The story also documented with named and anonymous sources other incidents of sexual harassment, inappropriate remarks, and relationships that crossed lines of reporting.
Hours after the story appeared, the company’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, sent email to employees that noted 48 people had been terminated in Google in the last two years, “including 13 who were senior managers and above,” and that none received an exit package. The email was co-signed by Google’s HR chief, Eileen Naughton.

Finally, something good.
Google says it doesn’t plan to comply with a proposed subpoena that would ask the tech giant to hand over names, email addresses, and IP addresses of women who anonymously contributed to a Google Docs spreadsheet highlighting men in the media industry accused of sexual misconduct and other inappropriate professional behavior.
The planned subpoena is outlined in a lawsuit filed this week by one of the accused on the Google doc, known as the Shitty Media Men list. Stephen Elliott filed the federal lawsuit against writer Moira Donegan, who came out as the document’s creator earlier this year. Elliott’s asking Google for the personal information of the list’s anonymous contributors ostensibly so he could sue them, too. Read more…
