Waka Flocka gave his opinion about the brands using Blackface and Black people’s reaction.
Gucci and other brands like Prada recently, and in the past as well used black face, clothing items/characters that depicted blackface.
A lot analyzers are saying companies use those situations to boost their brands through causing commotion; “All press is good press”.
