Gucci pulls ’blackface sweater’ from stores after complaints

Gucci has pulled a black polo neck sweater from its shops on Thursday after it sparked comparisons with racially offensive imagery. The ’balaclava jumper’ can be pulled up to the eyes with the mouth visible through large red lips. Users online quickly took to expressing outrage, with some pointing out the resemblance to a golliwog. The company offered an apology.

This more looks like bondage play then black face. Look it even has a hole for the ball gag.

This needs to be pulled from the shelves regardless of blackface. It's not only hideous, it's an embarrassment to the capacity of the human mind.
