Spike Lee wants nothing to do with Prada or Gucci anymore.
The famous filmmaker says he will no longer wear Gucci or Prada until the brands hire some black designers, and this is all because of the recent blackface fashion fails both companies had used.
Writing on his Instagram on Friday, he said, “It’s Obvious To Da Peoples That They Don’t Have A Clue When It Comes To Racist, Blackface Hateful Imagery. WAKE UP.”

I,Spike Lee Of Sound Mind And Body Will No Longer Wear Prada Or Gucci Until They Hire Some Black Designers " To Be In Da Room When It Happens". It's Obvious To Da Peoples That They Don't Have A Clue When It Comes To Racist, Blackface Hateful Imagery. WAKE UP. Ya-Dig? Sho-Nuff. And Dat's Da "Coonery And Buffoonery” Truth,Ruth.
He further added that these brands need to black designers, and until such happens, he will never touch their products.
Only recently, Gucci apologised for a high-neck black wool sweater that featured bright red lips when pulled over the face, while Prada apologized for a monkey bag charm resembling blackface in December.
