Luxury designer Virgil Abloh slammed for donating a measly $50 to protesters’ bail fund

Protesters ignited by the loss of life of George Floyd are dragging luxurious designer Virgil Abloh for being low cost in supporting their trigger. Abloh, 39, is the creative director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear assortment and CEO of the stylish label Off-White.

Abloh posted on his Instagram Tales that he had donated $50 to protesters in want of bail cash throughout the days-long upheaval across the country. In Los Angeles, the RSVP Gallery, which sells his model, was looted.

“The Miami group ~ I’m loopy impressed. For teenagers within the streets that want a bail funds [sic] for George Floyd protests,” he wrote within the Story, together with a string of posts concerning the looting going down at luxurious outlets like his. “If it heals your ache, you’ll be able to have it,” he wrote.

Different celebrities have publicly shared their donation amounts or help for the motion in latest days — Chrissy Teigen upped her unique $100,000 donation to a bailout fund to $200,000 after receiving backlash from her followers.

Twitter erupted with anger over Abloh’s modest contribution — some even briefly changed his Wikipedia page to learn Virgil “Low cost Ass” Abloh and Virgil “50$” Abloh. Critics identified that the contribution is about the same cost as a set of Off-White markers — on sale.

The Publish has reached out to Louis Vuitton for remark.
