What a world we live in!!!
Forver21 is taking some heat for a photo they tweeted and deleted yesterday. The tweet was promoting their new Black Panther Christmas Sweater Line with the popular “Wakanda Forever” slogan and a Black Panther mask printed on the front.
They used the whitest, most blonde, blue-eyed model as their star picture. Many were pointing out that they were frustrated that a black model was not chosen.
A rep for Forever21 says “Forever 21 takes feedback on our products and marketing extremely seriously. We celebrate all superheroes with many different models of various ethnicities and apologize if the photo in question was offensive in any way.”
Lets get real….. I find this backlash strange…. It’s a sweater….. And are we saying it’s a Sweater only for black ppl? COME ONE… White people cant buy the sweater if they like the black panther movie ?? Yeah let’s talk about racism!!!
Anyone remember the company FUBU? For Us By Us.. did it stop white people from wearing it? Didn’t stop me and I wasn’t offended!
People are being stupid and offended by everything lately! I’m Tired of people being offended by people being offended lol
