PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Urban Outfitters, a Philadelphia based company, has opted to produce a unique holiday candle that is reminiscent of the famous “LOVE Statue.” The candle features the F word in place of the LOVE.

“I would never ever buy that candle,”  Emily who was visiting the iconic LOVE statue, says she’s offended. “It’s obviously a take-off because you have the same font and lettering.”

Emily’s friend Sarah was shocked to see the candle.

“It’s very appalling. It’s not very nice especially for the holiday season!”

Cara Schneider from the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation.

“It’s not the kind of love that we are promoting here in Philadelphia. And you know, there’s freedom in shopping. People can buy it if they like, not if they don’t, but you won’t be seeing it in my stocking stuffers this year.”

There was not one person who said they would buy this candle…although.

“I know people who would, but not me.”
