T.I. Calls Out Burberry for Noose Hoodie


Earlier this month rapper T.I. took the lead on the Gucci boycott after the infamous blackface balaclava incident [click here if you missed that].

Now T.I. is calling out Burberry after they designed a hoodie with a noose attached to it...

Yeah any idiot can go onliine and have someone go online for shit to complain about and call racist. Wow so a noose on a fucking hoodie on a fucking outfit by a fucking designer that I have never worn, bought, or will buy is something Im supposed to care about. Tip address these dboys killing eeachother in the street like dogs, address this chronic blood pressure and heart disease affecting us as a people. THis social media outrage bullshit dont make you shit buddy. I see this the new feather in your cap to be a some sort of activists but you going about all wrong. We got BIGGER problems than some overpriced clothes. TIP know that but just like the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons, this aint for no black people, its for his exploiting ass. FOH TIP go somewhere and sit the fuck down until you REALLY want to make a change

Racist or not, it's just disturbing to think a noose is fashionable.

Let's boycott rappers that sensationalize drugs, violence and degradation of women.

At this point these companies are just trolling, because they know it generates publicity

9:06 can't do that because that means accountability. That means addressing the REAL FUCKING PROBLEMS we have in this country. These cats are not about making real sacrifices to make real change and that's why I dont give a fuck when they speak. Too much bs coming out they mouth. As far as the noose, ive seen dumber shit. If you aint buying it, who cares? We supposed to be outraged and boycott off this shit?

This Cancel Culture shit is really getting pathetic, I blame the GAY community for this rise in sensitive people that wanna cause fake outrage bout every damn thing.

Why can't people stay on topic?? Yeah drugs are bad. Violence is bad, etc. If you want to boycott rappers do that. Why didn't you do it yesterday? Or do you just find random shit to say when someone takes a stand or speaks out on something they feel. Have an original thought and get off the sideline with your judging ass.

And she has on a hoodie. Makes me think of Trayvon. Like they trying to associate the hoodie with the noose. Sickos.

Correct Troubleman, this is not a coincidence this is Trumps America. Dog whistles in full effect everywhere, it is a call to action for the rich and racists but black folks are being distracted because they don't care for your lyrics, and we are just posers not thinking for ourselves, and the boycotts won't last anyway...yadaa yadda. Meanwhile the racists are stirring the pot and getting their agendas lined up fulfill their sinister purpose.

Wanting positive lyrics from our rappers is not a distraction. It's an awakening. We can clean up our act and theirs at the same time.

^^ Then do that. Please. But it has nothing to do with T.I. posting about racists designers.
