Dapper Dan Addresses Gucci Blackface Controversy & Confirms Meeting With CEO

In addition to many others, legendary Harlem designer Dapper Dan is the latest to address the Blackface controversy surrounding Gucci, the famous fashion house he’s previously collaborated with.

While taking to Twitter, the designer explains, “I am a Black man before I am a brand. Another fashion house has gotten it outrageously wrong. There is no excuse nor apology that can erase this kind of insult.”
