  • The item is a reference to unsafe abortion practices,[1] where a wire coat hanger is used to break amniotic sac inside the womb in order to abort the fetus.
  • The item may also reference the movie "Mommie Dearest" (1981). The film features a scene in which Joan Crawford (played by Faye Dunaway), a psychotic and abusive mother, attacks her child for organizing her closet with wire hangers.
