Zara’s Latest T-Shirt Sparks Controversy
Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping at Zara. Their blazers are chic and their handbags are fabulous.
But their latest “fashion” choice probably wasn’t the best.
The retailer is reportedly selling t-shirts that read “WHITE IS THE NEW BLACK.”
While it is understandable that the world’s largest apparel retailer didn’t mean to be offensive, we do live in a world where Iggy Azalea has been called the “savior of hip-hop.” Not to mention, other companies have come under fire for poor clothing decisions.
Was there no one on the publicity team who thought that the meaning could be terribly misinterpreted?
