Fashion might move a mile a minute, but "racist" jewelry is hard to forget. And rapper and fashion darling Azealia Banks doesn't think it's too late to initiate a boycott, tweeting on Friday that she's "Definitely boycotting Dolce & Gabanna [sic]." She also wrote (and earmuff the innocent here): "Whoever designed that racist ass Dolce and Gabanna [sic] collection needs a swift kick in the mouth and a big dick up the ass?I really hate when people do corny, racist things then try to justify it as 'art.'?It's all just really unnecessary. the clothes in the collection were fine without all the 'black mammie' imagery." Well—if not colorfully—put. [Fashionista]
