Scott Disick is capitalizing on COVID-19 with ‘wash your hands’ merch

I have not written about Lord Scott Disick in some time. I can’t say as I’ve missed it. Maybe, a least part of the reason, that he has been conspicuously absent from my workload is because he’s been behaving himself for the most part. That would be refreshing. He is still dating Sophia Richie, which I absolutely cannot believe. But, other than their large age difference, they’ve been keeping to themselves. Dare I say, maybe their relationship is legit? Other than that, Scott is working on his various projects like his contractual obligation on the family teat, KUWTK, and his own show, Flip It Like Disick. In addition, Scott launched a clothing brand in 2018 called Talentless. Always the innovator, Lord D just added a new collection to his line, the COVID-19 collection. No, it’s not really called that, but it is capitalizing on the current pandemic. Scott has “designed” a line of t-shirts and hoodies that simply read: Please Wash Your Hands.

Am I a bad person if I don’t take exception to this? Had this been a play on the virus’s name or it’s devasting numbers globally, I would have found it in bad taste. But this seems kind of harmless. Every webpage I browse inundates me with various masks I can buy, and which hand sanitizer kills the most germs, it’s not like those companies aren’t tapping into fear-based purchasing. I find Scott’s approach kind of funny. First of all, there’s plenty of tongue-in-cheek already with the line. The Talentless name is a nod to the press Scott got from KUWTK for having no talent outside of fathering Kourtney Kardashian’s kids. The clothing itself are basic tees, hoodies, sweatpants, shorts and leggings. Most of the merchandise is blank, but he does have select merchandise that uses his Let The Lord Be With You self-identified catch phrase and Show Me the Love. (And, strangely, a few select Keith Haring designs. Don’t get me wrong, I like Haring a lot, I just didn’t expect him to pop up in a Scott Disick collection.) Not to mention how many times the voice in my head has screamed, “wash your damn hands, people!” So if Scott wants to charge his clientele $49 to become walking PSAs to help curb the spread of COVID-19, he should go for it.

I’m not endorsing the line nor is this site in any way affiliated with Talentless, but I will point out that Scott donates 3% of all Talentless sales to F*ck Cancer. I’d rather cut a check directly to the organization then pay $129 for a sweatshirt, but it’s nice to know Scott’s giving back.

So I will let you form your own opinion Scott’s CDC Advice collection. But if nothing else, do hear the man out and please, for the love of The Lord, folks – wash your hands.

    Just can’t stand this guy who bought his own “Lord” title. He’s such a slimeball and I see no redeeming qualities or talent whatsoever. His clothing line is basic and lame. Hope he’s a good dad to his kids though.

    • Ellie says:

      I bought my own Lady title! I ‘own’ a 1 metre square plot of land in Scotland (it’s actually a conservation area) but get to use the Lady title as a result. 🙂

  2. BANANIE says:

    This doesn’t offend me, but I do think he should rename “Talentless” to “Tasteless.”

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      Bananie, yes, that would be much more appropriate name. In regards to the shirt, I don’t think it is done in good taste. We all know to wash our hands for the length of happy birthday. The Dick doesn’t need it on a shirt. He must have collaborated with Whinny West!

  3. Case says:

    I agree. It’s funny and harmless. I’m not proud to say I’ve gotten sucked into KUWTK a time or too, and I actually like Scott a lot. He’s quirky, but somehow a lot more self-aware than the rest of that family.

  4. DenG says:

    I just know I have seen his vacant face and soul on ID Discovery. He’s the prototype of egocentric empty human.

  5. Erinn says:

    As far as offensive things that have happened in regards to this virus, this is pretty low level. And honestly? I appreciate the sentiment. You just don’t REALIZE how many people aren’t washing their hands. It’s horrifying. And having underlying health conditions – I’d almost be tempted to get one.

    If you’ve worked in a call center, or daycare/school, or some other place where germs just run RAMPANT you know how gross people can be. You can literally hear the coughing travel through the building during any given cold/flu season. So many people do not wash their hands after leaving the bathroom. So many people don’t cover their nose / mouth when they sneeze or cough. Just imagine how much healthier we would all be if everyone just vaccinated for herd immunity and actually washed their hands PROPERLY and covered their nose/mouth when they’re sick.

    This person has never been on my radar, but I have to confess that I found this thread curiously refreshing! I am starting to suspect that I have become an unwitting victim of the “dumbing down of a previously intelligent person”. It is quite insidious, not to mention alarming! Be that as it may I am oddly cheered by this piece of mindless fluff! I will now shuffle myself out the door, coffee in hand, grin on face.

  7. lemonylips says:

    I’d add “clean your phones”. Seriously, I wash my hands but then I touch my phone and I only yesterday remembered that phones are the worst

  8. AnnaKist says:

    Rather entrepreneurial I suppose, although I think he’s a git. I was washing my hands in the ladies’ at the shopping centre on Monday afternoon, singing “Happy Birthday” twice, in my head, of course. Out cane a woman from one cubicle, but she didn’t approach the sink. Another door opened and out cane her friend. They left as I started drying my hands. I couldn’t help myself, and called out, “Hey, ladies! You forgot to wash your hands!” Nope. Niente. Nothing. They didn’t return. I don’t know if it’s ignorance, obstinacy or stupidity that the message, been now, hasn’t sunk in to some brains. It’s basic hygiene, for crying out loud.

    • megs283 says:

      ugh ugh ugh, Personally I’m looking forward to getting sick less often, now that people are washing their hands like they SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG. It’s a shame your coworkers have not gotten the memo! Good job fighting the good fight!

  9. TIFFANY says:

    I was expecting worse. Eh.

  10. Melody says:

    With his « perfect hair », looking deeply at himself in the mirror, and the germaphobe message, he totally looks like American Psycho, right ?

  11. Izzy says:

    Given what we have all learned recently about how many people have such crappy hygiene habits (pun intended), I have no problem with the reminders on the clothes.

  12. Laurie says:

    I think this is fine. It’s not offensive and it’s reminding people do do something good for their wellbeing and for humanity so that we don’t keep spreading the virus.

  13. Ellie says:

    A gross number of people don’t wash their hands after they use the toilet in public (or at home). People are filth. Always wash your hands, you animals. Remind others. This is fine.

    Are we sure that he’s not really part oof the Rump family?
