Soulja Boy is evidently still upset about Gucci’s controversial sweater that bore a striking resemblance to blackface. During a recent concert, Young Drako started performing his 2008 cut “Gucci Bandana,” but quickly stopped the music.
“Fuck Gucci!” he says. “Gucci canceled. Get the fuck outta here. Oh I forgot, Gucci racist as fuck. Man, y’all got me fucked up. Gucci put out that racist ass shit with that blackface shit on that shit. Fuck Gucci on my mama.
“I spent over $1 million on Gucci in the last 10 years. Y’all can suck my dick with that racist shit. Fuck Gucci! Next song.”
Soulja Boy already banned his signature Gucci headband following the public outcry. The luxury fashion brand released the $890 sweater earlier this year and quickly issued a statement apologizing for the item, which many deemed horribly offensive.
“Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper,” a statement read. “We can confirm that the item has been immediately removed from our online store and all physical stores. We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make.”
Despite Gucci’s apology, several rappers started boycotting the brand, including T.I. and, of course, Soulja Boy.
Let me get this straight, @gucci issues an apology for a sweater that appears to resemble blackface…I just can’t *screaming*!
Cut the shit! Step away from blackface. It was racist and dehumanizing in the late 19th century and it is still racist today &forever more pic.twitter.com/3iPiMehPiZ
