Gucci put white models in turbans and Sikhs are not having it

Published

on

Models wearing the latest styles from Italian luxury brand Gucci with turbans have sparked a backlash.

Musician Utkarsh Ambudkar was among those offended by white models walking the catwalk in Milan while wearing the traditional head covering.

“What in the unholy culturally appropriating fuck is this?” he asked.

Sikhs, who often face oppression and even violence for wearing turbans in the West, were among those offended.

“My blood is boiling right now. As a Sikh, I see this as a huge sign of disrespect and disregard towards Sikhism,” wrote Twitter user @desiavan. “It isn’t hard to educate yourself on the significance of a turban. This isn’t a mere fashion accessory!”

“Hundreds and thousands of Sikhs were de-scalped and killed for professing their Sikh faith and wearing the turban,” wrote Twitter user Ajit Singh. “Sikhs still face so much physical+verbal abuse in the west due to the turban. This is our crown.”

Canada-born actor Avan Jogia was among the first to take note of the turbans. He plead with other people of color to join him: “this happens to ALL of us, say something even if it doesn’t apply to you personally. I got you, if you got me. Peace and love.”

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
