Can I revive a hot pink sweatshirt with black stain?

My favorite hot pink sweatshirt from J Crew got thrown in with a load of darks and is now purple-ish

I tried to wash it several times with color catchers but it's only lifted slightly.

Is there any way to save it? It has only air dried so far...

If it is cotton I think you are now the owner of a pretty purple sweatshirt. Bleach may get rid of the purple but the pink would also go.

I had the same problem when some colored clothes got washed with some black pants that had recently been re-dyed. I tried everything I could think of or find online but it didn't end well for my clothes.
