Reaction from Afronative Founder – Mohammed Blakk

“The homecoming Szn is upon us all, Africans,in Africa and every where else in Africa. At every point of lives, we need not lose touch of the fact, there are people who have strived for everything that we enjoy today, and we also need to first thrive and then strive to prepare for those who will come after us.

For those who are here no more, like our icons Kwame Nkrumah, Queen Nanny, King Takyi and Asebu Amenfi, it is essential we uphold their way of life, while charting new paths based on whatever that suits us today.

Virgil Abloh Criticized For Donating A Trifling $50 To #BlackLivesMatter Protesters’ Bail Fund

Published

on

Virgil Abloh, the founder and CEO of the premium brand ‘Off-White’ and artistic director of menswear line at Louis Vuitton, had a very interesting way of expressing his support to the Black Lives Matter movement and social media users are not here for it.

Since protests ignited by George Floyd’s death broke, many protesters who support the Black Lives Matter movement have been arrested for ‘looting’ and ‘violence’. Several celebrities have offered to pay for the legal expenses and release of the protesters who have been taken into custody.

While celebrities like Chrissy Teigen have already pledged $200,000 to help out the imprisoned protesters, Abloh revealed through his Instagram story that he had donated “$50” to protesters in need of bail money.
“The Miami community ~ I’m crazy inspired. For kids in the streets that need a bail funds [sic] for George Floyd protests,” he wrote in the Story.

In the backdrop of protests, Abloh took to his Instagram to rant about ‘streetwear culture’ and slammed the protesters for ransacking Sean Wotherspoon’s store.

In Los Angeles, the RSVP Gallery, which sells his ‘Off-White’ brand, was looted.

Reacting to the news, he said that the ones who have looted the merchandise should be ashamed of their actions.
“If it heals your pain, you can have it,” he wrote.

Twitter erupted with anger over Abloh’s modest contribution — some even briefly changed his Wikipedia page to read Virgil “Cheap Ass” Abloh and Virgil “50$” Abloh.
