Spike Lee took to social media to announce he is boycotting of Gucci and Prada until they hire black designers.
The announcement comes on the heels of both fashion houses releasing extremely offensive and racists clothing and products.
Gucci was offering an $890 sweater that looks like blackface and Prada was offering monkey-like figures with black faces and large red lips.
Uncle Spike says he’s done with Gucci and Prada until they truly get some diversity on their design team!
I, Spike Lee Of Sound Mind And Body Will No Longer Wear Prada Or Gucci Until They Hire Some Black Designers “To Be In Da Room When It Happens”. It’s Obvious To Da Peoples That They Don’t Have A Clue When It Comes To Racist, Blackface Hateful Imagery. WAKE UP. Ya-Dig? Sho-Nuff. And Dat’s Da “Coonery And Buffoonery” Truth, Ruth.

Hopefully, more celebrities will join Spike because this is ridiculous to the point of appearing very intentional.
