Gucci Designer, Dapper Dan, Breaks His Silence on Blackface Controversy: “I am a black man before I am a brand…I will hold everyone accountable”

By Tamantha Hip-HopVibe.com Staff Writer

Legendary fashion designer, Dapper Dan, has broken his silence surrounding the “blackface” controversy with Gucci.

In a post, he says:

”I am a Black man before I am a brand. Another fashion house has gotten it outrageously wrong. There is no excuse nor apology that can erase this kind of insult. The CEO of Gucci has agreed to come from Italy to Harlem this week to meet with me, along with members of the community and other industry leaders. There cannot be inclusivity without accountability. I will hold everyone accountable.”

I hope Dapper Dan reads everyone their Miranda rights. There is no excuse to be this ignorant in 2019.
