It's now known that ever since Anderson Cooper poked fun at Smashing Pumpkins'
Billy Corgan over his appearance on the cover of PAWS Chicago (a cat based magazine produced for charitable purposes), and in a commercial for Chicago furniture store, there's been bad blood between the two.
While we all thought Corgan had the final word by calling Cooper a "globalist shill" on Twitter, it seems the wound is still fresh. At the Pumpkins show in Chicago last Wednesday (11/26), their merch table had a new addition with a direct message aimed at Cooper.
Screened on a cream colored t-shirt, two cats sit front and center with "F*ck You Anderson Cooper" in large bold white print. Well, if that isn't a sign that all is not forgiven, not sure what is.
In the meantime, check out the video (courtesy of Stereogum
