Gucci “Deeply” Apologizes And Removes Wool Sweater They Think Resembles Blackface

These companies who do stuff like this know exactly what they are doing.

They want attention and business so they come up with something controversial to get what they want. Same as these celebrities who let a tit fall out or say something jacked up. They want their name in the news.

On Wednesday, Gucci released a statement regarding a sweater that had a “likeness” of blackface, “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.”

After Gucci’s wool balaclava jumper sparked outrage on social media for appearing to mimic blackface, the company has apologized and removed the product.

The piece from Gucci’s Fall Winter 2018 runway show looks like a black turtleneck that is worn up over the nose, with a red-lined cutout for customers’ mouths. It was inspired by “vintage ski masks,” according to its product description, which says it could also be worn just around the neck. The price: $890.

Amid Black History Month, social media users pointed out that the sweater could be seen as a depiction of blackface.

This stuff has to be on purpose – a great publicity stunt. Anyone that buys a $4,000 key chain doesn’t care about offending blacks. Next thing you know criminals will be getting “sentencing enhancements” for wearing a black ski-mask.
