It's been just revealed that Virgil Abloh faced some backlash when it came to the amount of money he showed on social media to help bail out BLM. The Shade Room noted that ha faced criticism again when it came to the creative eye he had.
TSR knows more, and you can check out what they recently revealed.
TSR said: 'He’s now looking past all of that and helping out the next black creative. He took to social media to announce that he raised $1 million to support scholarships for Black students through his "Post-Modern" Scholarship Fund.'
He reportedly said, 'Anyone that’s ever been in a meeting with me or a creative brainstorm or even a random iMessage chat knows that I’m forever fighting for the “17-year-old-version” of myself. What that specifically means is... all I want is for any young black kid to achieve a shorter path to their career goals, and if I can help with an open-source approach to opening doors or messaging "how-i-did-it" along the whole way, then I've done my real job, not my actual job.'
Someone said: 'If “let me do some damage control” was a person 😂' and a commenter posted this message: 'That’s awesome but he’s still on the sh*t list.'
One other follower said: 'this $1 million isn’t even his he RAISED it.'
Someone else hopped in the comments and wrote this: 'actually I've given more than $50 to the BLM Foundation ($1,000) with my own money because I support it.'
