Burberry is under fire for hoodie with a noose around the neck

By: Carlie Beard

Here we go again with yet another fashion retailer “apologizing” for their lack of cultural awareness.

This time it’s Burberry who is under fire. During fashion week in London, the luxury brand featured a sweatshirt with a noose resembling rope around the neck. CEO, Marco Gobbetti, released a statement saying, “We are deeply sorry for the distress caused by the one of the products featured in our A/W 2019 runway collection”.

Not quite sure if “distress” was the proper word choice...try outrage maybe? At this point, it looks like fashion brands are in a competition to see who can create the most offending apparel. Who is next?
