One week into fashion week, and here we are.
Fashion month is in full swing, so for the next couple of weeks we can expect Kendall Jenner credited with “starting a trend” that has been around forever, and of course, plenty of controversial stuff. Because fashion — especially high fashion — can be tone-deaf and problematic AF.
For example: Russian couture designer Ulyana Sergeenko thought it would be a good idea to send blogger and fashion darling Miroslava Duma, a welcome note that said “To my n*ggas in Paris.” And, Duma, for whatever reason, uploaded it to her Instagram stories with a heart emoji.
As predicted, they both issued apologies shortly after. Mioslava Duma’s was pretty standard:
But her apology wasn’t enough, and she’s already been dropped from The Tot’s board, a parenting brand she co-founded.
And people are seeing right through it.
Because this is a perfect example of how not to apologize.
Unfortunately, there are a few people who are coming to their defense.
And those who, for whatever reason, are trying to make light of this horrible situation.
