Rasheeda Frost Appears in Designer Wear, Fans Ask if She’ll Join Boycotts of Gucci, Prada
Written by jm on 02/11/2019
A slew of celebrities joined this week to boycott Gucci and Prada after the fashion brands used controversial imagery that resembled blackface on some items. Since the incident, Frost hasn’t been seen wearing Gucci or Prada, but fans are curious to know if she too plans to boycott the companies.
The 36-year-old took to her social media on Friday and shared an image of herself rocking all-designer attire at her Pressed boutique in Atlanta. She sported a Fendi poncho, black jeans and Fendi sneakers. The photo focused mainly around her sleeked side-ponytail that fell just a little above her waist.
“Me & my ponytail 😘,” Frost captioned the photo.
However, fans seemed more concerned about the star’s perceived obsession with designer labels. They wanted to know if Frost was boycotting Gucci and Prada after wearing those labels frequently in the past.
“I hope I never see u in Gucci so switch over to Fendi it looks better anyway,” one fan commented.
“Are you still wearing Gucci or nah?” another asked. “You say ‘me and my ponytail’ and the labels you are wearing outshine your ponytail are you boycotting Gucci and Prada?”
A few other fans blasted the “LHHATL” actress for still following Gucci on Instagram.
“Why are you still following Gucci on ig 🤔?”
“Stop following Gucci on Instagram! We see it!”
Frost has yet to address if whether or not she will continue to support Prada or Gucci.
Last week, Gucci pulled a $890 black knit sweater that included bright red lips which evoked blackface imagery. The company released a statement on Feb. 6 saying it “deeply apologizes for the offense caused.”
Rapper T.I. responded to Gucci on Feb. 8 with an Instagram post that read, “APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED!!!! We ain’t going for this ‘oops my bad I didn’t mean to be racist and disrespectful towards your people.’”
The Atlanta artist also blasted Prada for selling minstrel-like charms in December. Prada released a statement last year apologizing for the offensive merchandise.
“We would like to convey our deep regret and sincere apologies for the Pradamalia products that were offensive. … We will learn from this and we will do better.”
