Dapper Dan - Gucci


Earlier this week, Dapper Dan told us the CEO of Gucci was flying in from Italy to Harlem to have a meeting with him about their offensive blackface sweater.

The fashion icon promised he would hold Gucci accountable because he is a black man before he is a brand.

The meeting took place as planned and Dan returned to social media to offer an update:

Meanwhile…back at the Instagram ranch, 50 Cent called out Dan for continuing to work with Gucci.




Dapper Dan responded with a post on his page where he praised Floyd Mayweather for his unwavering support and thanked JAY-Z for opening doors for him when other celebrities got selective amnesia.

When the brands took everything from me and I was sewing in a basement, @floydmayweather was there. When artists couldn’t afford to buy #DapperDan clothes, I would give them credit, and then y’all got famous and y’all never came back. I’m not going to call y’all out, but I’ll give y’all the opportunity to speak up. This new journey for me started with #JayZ (@aintnojigga); Thank you brother for doing that #LifeAndTimes feature on me, which led to #KelefaSanneh’s 2013 “Harlem Chic” cover story in @newyorkermag. Shortly after that, #BlackTwitter exploded. Black Twitter is why I reached where I am today. And I want to give a special thanks to @wutangclan, because they told their stylist @monicamorrow to “find Dapper Dan” because they wanted me to do their clothes. And thanks to you too @diddy for sending @marnixmarni, @juneambrose, and @misahylton to the basement for clothes also! Picture #1: @floydmayweather in the basement. Picture #2: #JayZ @aintnojigga wearing a jacket that was made in the basement.
