GUCCI is messing up!
They just dropped this $890 black-knit women’s balaclava that could be pulled up over the lower half of the wearer’s face. The sweater included bright red lips ringing an opening for the mouth, a detail widely denounced on social media as evoking blackface imagery.
The world is in uproar and rightfully so.
Gucci released a statement on Twitter saying: "Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper. We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make." You can read the rest of their statement HERE .
How do you feel about it especially during Black History Month!?
