Really Prada ....
The buzz on the Twitter then the internet was crazy yesterday!
Another high end brand decided to follow in the footsteps of H&M. After Dolce & Gabanna's Disaster not too Long ago, my question is" WHY PRADA WHY?"
So if you didnt hear... Read
Chinyere Ezie, a staff attorney for the Center fir Constitutional Rights called attention to the tge design in a Facebook post Thursday. The post was shared way over 6700 times early friday afternoon.
She stated "I don't make a lot of public posts, but right now I'm shaking with anger. Today after returning to NYC after a very emotional visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of African History and Culture including an exhibit on Blackface. I walk past Prada's Soho storefront only to be confronted with the very same racist and denigrating #blackface imagery."
Yup Blackface the mockery of black people.
Ezie include pictures of Otto from Pradamalia Collection which is charm thats a creature. Otto was on handbags, cardholders, phonecases and more.
The Italian Brand decided to remove all monkey like figures from their stores on Friday after being hit with huge racist criticism on social media.
Prada claims like the others companies that "Pradamalia are fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre and not blackface imagery.
Would love to know your thoughts on this very touchy topic.
In my opinion no human should ever be compare to monkeys or any other animal.
Its crazy how African-Americans support these luxury fashion brands that only see them as money.
