Marc Jacobs Controversial Remarks On The Use Of Dreadlocks In Fashion Show

Some of you don’t know his face but you know his brand, Marc Jacobs has done what most high-end fashion brands have done making stupid ass comments about race which only kills him in the long run he should get the ‘Dumb Dumb award “For the Day but shall I continue on with the story….

Well, Well, Well,   it seems like Marc Jacobs closed out of the Big Apple’s annual fashion week with a controversial gesture.The famed designer decided to make his models wear faux colorful dreadlocks, but received opposition from spectators who asked why he failed to use models of color to adorn the hairstyle.

Today, Jacobs decided to respond to a couple of commenters on Instagram and spewed even more controversial colorblind remarks.

Looks like we need to do more research on these fashion designers and their brand before you support them by purchasing their brand I’m just saying

@radical.lizeth @emmelephant and all who cry ‘cultural appropriation’ or whatever nonsense about any race or skin color wearing their hair in any particular style or manner,” Jacobs begins, “funny how you don’t criticize women of color for straightening their hair. I respect and am inspired by people and how they look. I don’t see color or race — I see people. I’m sorry to read that so many people are so narrow-minded… Love is the answer.”

“funny how you don’t criticize women of color for straightening their hair” MARC JACOBS OFFICIALLY CANCELED

His comments warranted even more reactions on social media.

marc jacobs response to dreads on white models is the exact response I’d expect from a white person ew

marc jacobs’s response to being called out for cultural appropriation is gross and shows he has no idea that racism forces ppl to assimilate

So which celebrity is going to teach Marc Jacobs about cultural appropriation, and how appropriation DOES NOT equal assimilation?

I’m about to burn all my Marc Jacobs makeup in my backyard like wypipo did Kaepernick jersey

Oh and by the way please and get your award for the day Marc!
