Gucci Apologizes for ‘Blackface’ Turtleneck Gucci_ciomsg

Gucci has apologized for selling a sweater after people pointed out that its design looked like blackface. The top, which has now been pulled from the fashion house’s online and physical stores, is a black turtleneck that can be pulled up over the bottom half of the face to reveal oversize red lips. In a tweet sent late Tuesday, the company said it “deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper,” and added: “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.” Film producer and media personality Tariq Nasheed said the apology wasn’t good enough, writing: “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.”


Is it just me, thinking this looks like the kind of clothes (minus the lips) what an extremist Antifa would wear?
