People Pissed At Prada For Releasing Doll That Looks Like Blackface


Chinyere Ezie, a New York City lawyer, walking by a Prada store in Manhattan happened to spot a display advertising dolls being sold for $550. She couldn't help but notice the similarities the dolls had to blackface caricatures used in the Jim Crow era of the United States. Ezie, angered by the similarities tweeted a picture of the display. 


 

As a response to the outcry, Prada quickly lowered the blinds of the windows before eventually removing the display. 



They also tweeted out an apology distancing themselves from any racist ideology that they may have been associated with.



 



This didn't stop the masses from criticizing the high fashion chain, as they wonder how exactly, a company where so many people are employed, let something like this slip through the cracks.
