Gucci In Hot Water For Racist Over-Priced Clothing [Video]

Luxury Brand Gucci is known to be expensive but now they have found a new label of slightly racist or at least that’s what the MSM is claiming.

Gucci for whatever reason put out a black turtle neck where the neck part could be rolled up to the face. The part that covered the face had an opening for the mouth and was dyed red to look like lips. Social media went wild upon seeing this claiming it is an obvious play on blackface.

So @gucci puts out a sweater that looks like blackface…… On Black History Month….
And then issues an apology because they didn’t know that blackface images are racist.

Some complained that it was not only racist but staggeringly overpriced at $890.

Gucci, of course, put out an apology vowing to be better.

“Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper. We can confirm that the item has been immediately removed from our online store and all physical stores.

We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make. We are fully committed to increasing diversity throughout our organization and turning this incident into a powerful learning moment for the Gucci team and beyond.

Watch The Clip Below. 

This is not the first time a fashion brand has been accused of using such imagery. Last year, luxury fashion house Prada said it withdrew products after some items displayed in a Manhattan storefront were seen as depicting blackface imagery. The products, part of Prada’s Pradamalia line, were pulled after images surfaced of some merchandise depicting monkey-like figures with black faces and large red lips.”

I wouldn’t say it was definitely racist as it is just lips around the mouth in a red shade. But nearly $900 for a black wool turtleneck that’s ridiculous. Who would want to spend that much when you can get one for 2% of that price at almost any other retailer. That how you go from rich to poor.
