Geeking For Good: Firefly Fans React to Mass-Produced Jayne Hats Controversy, ThinkGeek Responds with Charitable Gesture to Equality Now

When you think of the hat that Jayne Cobb’s mama made for him as a gift in sci-fi fan favourite Firefly, you probably think a little of the love that went into it, turning it into a symbol of the warm, fluffy centre under Jayne’s big tough mercenary exterior. It’s that kind of love that a lot of fans have for this show, so it makes perfect sense that with no licensed replica available before now, Browncoats with a knack for knitting have been making and selling handmade versions of the hat for each other since the show’s cancellation in 2002.

Enter FOX, returning once again to ruin every Firefly fan’s day.
