T.I. Announces Boycott Of Gucci After Blackface Scandal: “Apology Not Accepted”


T.I. urges all people of colour who purchase Gucci to follow suit.

Gucci found themselves in some hot water this week after they decided to launch a “blackface” mask. They aren’t the first, and probably not the last, but considering how much their brand is championed by People Of Colour, to say it was merely a tone-deaf accident doesn’t cut it. Spike Lee already announced that he’d be boycotting the brand and now, T.I. has stepped up to the plate and urged his followers to boycott the brand as well.

T.I. took aim at Gucci earlier today and dragged them across the floor on Instagram. The rapper explained how he’s been an avid shopper of Gucci products but the racially insensitive item crosses the line. Regardless of what their reason is for the mask, he said that all people of color should boycott he brand.
