This vintage tee is referencing the unforgettable 1935 headline printed by Variety newspaper titled, "Sticks Nix Hick Pix", which roughly translates to people from rural United States rejecting Hollywood's depictions of them. This sort of language is dubbed "slanguage" or "headlinese", and was a playful way of reporting entertainment news at Variety.
The article became pretty famous for its catchy title and has been parodied and reference throughout media and pop culture. Variations of the phrase has been used in TV and movies like The Simpsons and Sister Act. Even other publications like the New York Times and Chicago Tribune has borrowed this style of headlining.
