It seems like one brand after another is doing something that rubs someone the wrong way. Marc Jacobs went full-on “I don’t see color” when called out for cultural appropriation for dreadlocks in his latest New York Fashion Week runway show but later apologized.
Kat Von D posted a photo of her monochromatic artistry team and when a commenter suggested she use a more diverse group of people, namely deeper toned MUAs, KVD clapped back by saying her team is diverse and she hires people based on what’s inside and not based on skin tone.
And let’s not even get into all the stuff that’s been swirling around Jeffree Star.
So let’s get into it. When the face of a brand receives press like this does it make you pause or flat out refuse to purchase from the brand? I’m here comments, tweets, snaps, etc. Hit me up and let me know your opinions on the subject.
