Gucci is being blasted for a wool balaclava jumper that many are saying looks like blackface makeup.

The sweater, which was being sold for $890, drew criticism across the internet and has since been discontinued by the fashion brand.

They issued an apology on Twitter.

This fashion controversy concerning blackface comes amid a political one in Virginia.

The state’s governor and attorney general are both facing allegations of racism because they both admitted they blackened their faces decades ago.
