In a post on Twitter sorry Gucci to all who have been offended by the sweater.

Racist

There are comments in the social media that going to be the background for that Gucci decided to pull the garment. The sweater covered, namely, the face to above the nose, and the opening around his mouth was in red color. It could, therefore, memory of the big lips.

On social media claimed that the sweater was a little sensitive and downright racist, especially given that several american politicians have been in hard weather as a result of the old photos where they have a "Black face"-utkledning. Among these are democrats Mark Herring and Ralph Northam.

In its opinion sorry including Gucci that may have offended anyone as a result of the garment.

Multiple instances

According to the news agency AP had also Prada in the December draw products that had a motif of a black person with exaggerated big lips, and for a just over a year ago, also had H & M pull a sweater for racism-accusations.

The time there was a little mørkhudet boy with a green sweater pressed the "coolest monkey in the jungle" on the chest, which got the users on social media to race against the Swedish clothing retailer.

We are terribly sorry over this picture, and apologize. We have made a mistake, and have therefore removed the image from all of our channels, as well as decided to draw the jumper from all of our markets, wrote head of communication at H&M Norway, Joanna Morell, in an email to Dagbladet at the time.
