The clothing chain Forever 21 said they were sorry for hiring a white model to sell its new Black Panther sweater, which has the words Wakanda Forever on the front.
Of course, the film Black Panther broke ground, not only in the box office, but for being the first Black superhero movie to get major studio backing. The predominantly Black cast was also a different look for a superhero film, so many believed the person who modeled the sweater shouldve been Black....

So they don’t want any white people to buy the sweater?
Apology. Big mistake
Where are the apologies from blacks playing white people, or doing the voices of white animated characters? Keegan michael Key did voicing for a white animated character on the series Super Mansion.
Where’s the apologies?
Can they farm it out to a HB1 Indian model?
Well, sure. And Hogan's Heroes should apologize to the Nazis for putting Kinch in a Wehrmacht uniform.
“Where are the apologies from blacks playing white people”
Like the entire cast of “Hamilton”.
That’s dumb and cowardly. Get ready to have your chain collar jerked this way and that way at the whims of PC people. Most of the complainers wouldn’t be buying your clothing anyway.
They just like complaining, for some as a hobby, for others as a ‘spiritual crusade’.
Dig those sideburns!
But yet the play “Hamilton” is praised...
“Can they farm it out to a HB1 Indian model?”
MMmmmmmmm...depends on his skin lightness/darkness ratio, I suppose.
And aren’t they norming binary sexism? Why a male model instead of a fat, angry gender-questioning lesbian feminist model?
I guess it is not going to be a white Christmas.
David Oyelowo played a white Imperial in Star Wars Rebels.
When are TV marketers going to apologize and acknowledge that people of color do not make up 75% of the population?
Never apologize to bullies.
I forgot about that HH bit.
I have a feeling, that many of them, dont want white people around, for any reason. 👎
I’d go with they don’t want White people to shop with them, if I had a young daughter I wouldn’t let her. Let them make their money of Blacks and Hispanics.
Liberals are putting whites as the new Jews.
