Marc Jacobs (AKA Ultra Famous Designer) has found himself in the middle of a racially charged firestorm after being accused of cultural appropriation when he sent the models for his Spring/Summer 2017 fashion show down the runway in faux locs.
Apparently, the drama comes because he failed to credit anyone Black or anything associated with Black culture as inspiration.
This action was unsurprisingly met with heated criticism that ranged from questioning why Jacobs didn’t just use black models with their own natural locs and calling for a boycott of the luxury designer.
While the tweets and comments rolled in, the public was patiently waiting for Jacobs and his head hairstylist Guido Palau to issue a heartfelt apology.
