Louis Vuitton Michael Jackson Clothing Pulled

Louis Vuitton has finally responded to the backlash around its Michael Jackson fall 2019 menswear collection.

Read on to see what Louis Vuitton’s men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh said about the Louis Vuitton Michael Jackson clothing line…

CelebNFashion247.com has learned that Louis Vuitton’s men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh shared a statement with WWD.

Virgil Abloh said:

I am aware that in light of this documentary the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights.

Continued Abloh:

My intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist. It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers.

Michael Burke, Vuitton’s chairman and chief executive officer, echoed the sentiment:

We find the allegations in the documentary deeply troubling and disturbing. Child safety and welfare is of utmost importance to Louis Vuitton. We are fully committed to advocating this cause.

The statement also added that the documentary caused the label “the greatest pain” and that its team was “unaware” of the documentary on the day of the men’s runway show, which took place on Jan. 17.

The release of “Leaving Neverland,” has caused a severe backlash against the late Michael Jackson. The two men allege they were sexually assaulted by the pop icon when they were children.

Our question, is why now? Why so many years after he died? Something smells wrong and it seems uncouth. T.I. has defended Michael Jackson legacy and his kids are planning to sue.
