This Virgil Abloh hot take with him having an all white staff is an interesting conversation that is so layered but much needed.

Me watching everyone come to the realization that Virgil is indeed not bringing diversity into the spaces he occupies in the luxury landscape because I warned y’all about this over a year ago: pic.twitter.com/vZ7h4mSCe7

Not surprised by this AT ALL (because Kanye and Luka are the only black people he knows ??♂️) but it does disgust me… like not one black face, no kids from “Chicago” pic.twitter.com/PTMQatiHpQ

Mr. @virgilabloh, more diversity, NOW!

Virgil Abloh = scam likely.
He legit couldn’t find one black male/female with technical fashion design exp/knowledge…surely someone from FAMU, Howard, Grambling could’ve been a creative asset to the team. Black ppl were so proud and supportive during your launch Bro Smh!

Virgil Abloh’s team mainly being compromised of white creatives makes me think about all the majority white filled offices I’ve ever interviewed in for a technical design job and feeling superbly intimidated from jump.

All of Off White’s art directors & design team is 100% WHITE. “ Diversity “.

Why are y’all surprised that the label Off-White, which is owned by an White Italian fashion conglomerate by the way, lacks racial and ethnic diversity. https://t.co/Q0gEJC3Rr0

@virgilabloh literally make clothes for super rich yt kids, not surprised. He uses black people as decorations for his product. He isn’t interested in actually doing this *for* black people, no wonder he doesn’t hire them https://t.co/xYFvxA3wbz

Off-White™ 公關代表目前仍拒絕給出官方回應，但其指出 Virgil 的 Instagram Story 所拍下的人僅為團隊中的一部分，有興趣的讀者不妨密切留意後續報導，另外亦可查看 Awake NY 2019 春夏系列 Lookbook 及單品完整公開的消息。
