50 Cent Joins Gucci Boycott By Setting his Shirt on Fire
Many celebrities have taken action in the Gucci boycott after the brand released a racially offensive blackface sweater including T.I., Spike Lee and 50 Cent. 50 Cent has made his stance clear by taking his protest straight to Instagram. He posted a video of himself burning a Gucci shirt along with other Gucci items. Other artists who are choosing not to participate in the boycott against the brand include Floyd Mayweather and rapper, Kodak Black.
Gucci released an apology recently which read,
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.
The designer Gucci has found themselves in some deep trouble after selling what many deem to be a racist blackface sweater. The black balaclava sweater was designed with a neck portion that can be pulled over the face with a red outlined cut out for the lips. They sweater was selling for $890. The sweater received backlash due to its resemblance of the racist form of theatrical make-up used in the 19th century by predominantly by non-black performers to represent a caricature of a black person, otherwise known as blackface.
