The Gucci brand found itself in hot water after the blackface scandal. Now, 50 Cent sets his Gucci clothes on fire and posts it on Instagram. Watch his video below.
‘I gotta get rid of all the Gucci I have at home. I’m not supporting their brand anymore. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #bellator,’ 50 Cent captioned her post.
Someone addressed rapper Tip and said ‘@troubleman31 ya should have a “Burn The House Down” (or similar clever name event where ya bring all your name brand clothes (those involved) and burn it!!! Make money off THEM! #FlipTheScript‼️ @50cent … IF YOU AGREE REPLY TO THIS COMMENT & TAG YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST #ActionsSpeakLouderThanWords 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💯💯💯💯💯’
Someone has a proposal for 50 Cent and said: ‘@50cent why not buy up more of their brands and take it to the slumps or war-wrecked countries, make the video of you donating their brands to this homeless war wrecked people, make a video documentary till the Gucci turns to rags within few days, then send this video out. Gucci is then for the poor.’
Another follower bashed him and said ‘This is an act of stupidity, there are less privileged out there, and you are here burning down Gucci what of dollars and you want us to clap for you.’
Here’s another similar opinion: ‘Like I said people like this and @troubleman31 are dumb as hell, burning your Gucci clothes that u spent ur hard earned money on? Hating on a brand that made a mistake, took it down and apologized immediately right after, then hating and bashing another brother cause he wanted to shop there minding his own? It doesn’t matter what Gucci did it’s how we as a people took it if Floyd wanna shop there that’s his damn choice how u gonna tell another man where he can spend his bread? This shit wack and corny what y’all doing, people, black & white still shop there and work in there as well, what u Gonna do hate Gucci’s forever. This is very low.’
Even Jamie Foxx commented on his post and here’s what he had to say.
One of The Shade Room’s followers said that ‘He should have donated it to the homeless. It’s already been purchased so what’s the harm in making some good out of a bad situation.’
