BlackFace Gucci?

A $890 Gucci top has sparked outrage on Twitter with many claiming that it appears to play off blackface

On its site, Spring said that the season 'reflected the stark environment of an operating room, emulating the theme of the collection where reconstructing materials and fabrics created a new identity. 

'Inspired by vintage ski masks, multicolored knitted balaclavas walked the runway, adding a mysterious feel to this collection. This knit top combines the accessory with the ready-to-wear collection.'

Searches on Gucci's website revealed that the item was not listed. But archive searches indicate that the clothing item was last on the brand's site in January.  

The controversy comes after horrifying blackface and lynching images from North Carolina Democrat Roy Cooper’s yearbook emerged just days after he called on Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to resign over racist images in his yearbook.   

Virginia's third-ranking official revealed he too wore blackface in the 1980s on the same day as a woman claimed she was forced to perform oral sex on the state's Justin Fairfax, who many have said should replace Northam. 

What’s do you all think , is this BlackFace or is everyone just fake outraged ? The sweater has been on the site since 2018 from the Fall Collection. However , this isn’t the first time we had to check Gucci. Last year , they tried to steal a replica Dapper Dan piece
