Gucci has stopped selling a sweater that resembles blackface.

The black turtleneck pulls up to cover the face with a red lip outline. The sweater was priced at $890 before backlash caused Gucci to pull it from stores and online. In a statement, Gucci apologized for "the offense caused." They also said,

"We are fully committed to increasing diversity throughout our organization and turning this incident into a powerful learning moment for the Gucci team and beyond."

But the people of Twitter went off on Gucci.
