Controversial Gucci woollen jumper


Gucci recently joined the long list of fashion brands that have offended black people with its newly released black woollen jumper that looked like the racist blackface used to demean black people in America’s history.

The luxury brand placed on sale the black “balaclava jumper” which covers the lower half of the face featuring a red cut-out around the mouth. It quickly received backlash on social media for the design which was deemed offensive. The company took to social media to apologize for what it acknowledged to be an “offence” and added that it would be removed from sale.
