Iconic fashion brand Gucci abruptly pulled their ‘Balaclava Knit Top Black’ from stores nationwide Thursday; apologizing to shoppers over widespread complaints the apparel resembled “black face” make-up.
“Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper. We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make,” posted Gucci on social media.

“We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respect, and at the forefront of every decision we make,” added the statement.
The move comes days after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam came under fire after images of two men dressed in “black face” make-up and Ku Klux Klan robes appeared in his 1984 yearbook.

A NEW LOW: Schiff Claims RUSSIA Pushed SECOND AMENDMENT so AMERICANS Can ‘Kill Each Other’
Rep. Adam Schiff took his all-out obsession with Russian collusion to a new level Monday evening, breathlessly suggesting the Kremlin promoted the Second Amendment on Facebook to help Americans “kill each other” during the 2016 presidential election.

“We can see for example on Facebook, so graphically what I was mentioning earlier; the multiple aims of the Russians in their interference in our elections. On Facebook you had the content that was clearly anti-Hillary and you had the content that was very pro-Trump,” said Schiff.
“Of course, they parroted Black Lives Matter to try to broaden the racial divide in this country. Fascinatingly they also trumpeted the Second Amendment. The Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment,” he added.
“The Russians would be very thrilled if we would be doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are,” said the liberal lawmaker.
A NEW LOW: Liberal Ad Shows 'Racist' GOP Voters MOWING DOWN Minority Kids
A left-leaning Hispanic voting organization stood by their shocking new advertisement on Tuesday; doubling-down on a vicious campaign video that showed a random GOP voter intentionally mowing down minority children in his Confederate-flag adorned pick-up truck.
The stunning video, titled “American Nightmare,” was released by the Latino Victory Fund and shows groups of minority children fleeing a marauding supporter of GOP Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie; chasing his would-be victims in a “confederate” truck with a “Don’t tread on me” license plate.
Virginia Democrat candidate Ralph Northam defended the video on Tuesday, saying Gillespie’s own rhetoric forced the liberal organization to create the ad.
“Independent groups are denouncing Ed Gillespie because he has run the most divisive, fear-mongering campaign in modern history,” Northam campaign spokeswoman Ofirah Yheskel told Fox News. “It is not shocking that communities of color are scared of what his Trump-like policy positions mean for them.”
