Angry White Boy owner: Michelle McGee ‘will never model for me again’

‘Any publicity is good publicity’ -- really? If you’re among those caught up in the wake of Michelle McGee‘s information-wants-to-be-free claim of an affair with Jesse James, Sandra Bullock‘s husband, it depends.
Casey Exton, who coincidentally put her on the cover of this month’s Tattoo Revue magazine, is pretty stoked.
But Jimmy Ferrari, creator and chief exec of Angry White Boy Clothing, which also makes Angry White Girl stuff, which McGee modeled for, is doing a bit of damage control.
‘I don’t think it’s so right that she is getting so destroyed in the media. But I can’t be associated with any white supremacy nonsense,’ he told CBS News.
Ferrari posted a note on the company’s website Sunday stating that AWB ‘has severed all connections with former model Michelle Bombshell.’
Seems that after photos of McGee posing in a Nazi armband surfaced, folks assumed that Ferrari and his AWB brand had something to do with white supremacy. Ferrari says that’s not true.
‘The clothing line exists simply as an expression of its creator’s longtime admiration for the Hardcore music community,’ he said on the AWB website ‘Though its name was expressly contrived to be provocative and to combat what its creator feels is an overly-sensitive climate of political correctness, it is nothing more than a description of Jimmy himself and not meant to reflect, espouse, or support racist philosophy in any way.’ As for his former model, who’s reportedly been laying low, Ferrarri says the Bombshell is ‘a great person with an incredible sense of professionalism and it has been a pleasure to work with her in the past.’ In the note, he wishes her ‘all the best’ moving forward.
Meanwhile, over at West Coast Choppers -- where James was back at work Saturday -- business is up, a source tells People. Perhaps some stalkerazzi think it’s easier to spring for a custom bike than it is to deal with police.
