Hit Them Where It Hurts! Spike Lee Vows to No Longer Wear Gucci or Prada Until They Hire Black Designers

By Tamantha Hip-HopVibe.com Staff Writer

Spike Lee has joined the discussion about the backlash that Italian luxury clothing brand, Gucci, has been receiving for using “blackface” in their clothing. He vowed to stop wearing Gucci and Prada until they hire black designers.

In his IG post, he said:

”I, Spike Lee of sound mind and body will no longer wear Prada or Gucci until they hire some black designers “to be in da room when it  happens.” It’s obvious to da people’s that they don’t have a clue when it comes to racist, Blackface hateful imagery. WAKE UP. Ya-Dig? Sho-Nuff. And dat’s da “Coonery and Buffoonery” Truth, Ruth.”

Do you think other black celebrities will join in to boycott these clothing brands?
