Virgil Abloh is the latest person on the cancel block because he was tight-lipped in regards to the death of George Floyd, but was vocal about the looting.
To add fuel to the fire, he posted a screenshot of a $50 donation he made towards a bail fund and Black Twitter dragged him to and from the sunken place.
The Off-White designer apologized for his comments about the protests because it gave the impression that his “concern for those stores outweighed my concern for our right to protest injustice and express our anger and rage in this moment.”
“Buildings are brick and mortar and material things can be replaced, people can’t. Black lives matter. In this moment, those other things don’t,” he wrote. “People who criticize ‘looting’ often do also as way to make it seem like our fight against injustice isn’t legitimate. I did not realize the ways my comments accidentally contributed to that narrative. As mentioned yesterday, if looting eases pains nd further the overall mission, it is within good standing with me.”
Virgil took the time out to explain his $50 donation and made it be known that he actually donated $20,500 to bail funds in a matter-of-fact moment. I can understand your frustration if you think my contributions were limited to $50. purely false when it comes to the total. I have donated $20,500 to bail funds and other causes related to this movement.”
