KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (AP) - Three sisters say they were kicked out of a suburban Philadelphia mall after refusing to remove profanity-laden hats expressing their hatred of breast cancer.

Zakia Clark and Tasha Clark had been at the King of Prussia Mall on Sunday shopping for funeral dresses with a third sister, Makia Underwood. Their mother died last week after battling the disease.

Zakia and Tasha Clark were wearing hats that had a one-word profanity - with a pink ribbon substituting for the third letter - before the word cancer. Zakia Clark says it's the only word strong enough to defeat the word 'cancer.'

Security asked them to remove the hats. They were ejected after refusing.

Mall manager Robert Hart says he sends condolences to the sisters, but that the mall is a family place where the code of conduct does not tolerate profanity.
