Eminem is modeling a black panther sweater for forever21!
 

 
image
Forever 21 has pulled images of a white model wearing a Black Panther-inspired "Wakanda Forever" sweater from its website. On Tuesday, the fast-fashion retailer shared a photo and link for their Wakanda Forever Fair Isle Sweater to Twitter with the photo featuring a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white male model wearing the sweater with the battle cry of the fictional African nation across the chest as part of the design. As one might imagine backlash was swift, prompting Forever 21 to delete the tweet though the sweater -- complete with images of the white model wearing it -- remained on the website for several more hours.

...fictional African nation...
People should be outraged that idiots are running around pretending Wakanda isn't some made up place. I couldn't understand how people were dressing up like this was a Black History month event when this movie dropped. Cosplay is one thing...but it's not cosplay when you literally know nothing about the character or universe.

Some of you don’t realize it’s the presentation, not that a white person cant wear it.

News just came out that Disney trademark a term which is African language. Basically someone is from that land couldn’t even say their own language in a business fashion.

This sweater just reminded people of colonization hence the reaction. And such does need pusshback but it has nothing to do with can’t be worn by whites.

Agreed 100000%. My son went as Black Panther for part of Halloween.

To me, that's like saying no one can go as the Hulk unless you're green. fu*k type of logic is that....

It’s really about the dollars, just like that movie.

If you make a sweater like that, would you want to sell it to 15% of the population or 100%?

We’re “colonizers” until there’s a dollar to be made. Black folks need to stop being hypocrites with comments like that. Without white money hip-hop, movies like Black Panther, etc are not viable products.
