My hero Raury and the Dolce & Gabbana protest

Raury Protest Dolce and Gabbana

In news that shocks nobody, Miley and Dolce & Gabbana (well more correctly Gabbana) have been fighting over Instagram in what could be the lamest fight ever. Miley being Miley, passive-aggressively dug at D&G about not supporting their politics and Gabbana responded with “We don’t care about politics! Two fingers!”

This coincides of course, with D&G releasing their “Boycott Dolce & Gabbana” t-shirts, which is an apparent dig at anti-Trump followers and protesters who are sh!tty at the fashionhouse for dressing Melania. It’s a $245USD shirt so I guess D&G thought it would be funny to go with the “Let them eat cake” philosophy.  It’s up your alley if you’re a rich person who likes to make fun of millennials. It’s literally A WHITE T-SHIRT. Looking at it makes me cranky.

Anyway, take a seat Miley, someone else did the hard yards in taking a stand. Raury, a 21 year old rapper from Atlanta, was invited to partake in the D&G runway to help promote their Spring-Summer collection. He accepted thinking it was an honour and then he did his research on what D&G actually represents, most of it not good (seriously those guys should stop talking, they spend a lot of time apologising). So he took the matter in his own hands and when it came time for him to do his final walk, he whipped off his hoodie to actually protest D&G. This was not some trivial keyboard warrior protest. He mentions running away from a security guard after the event.

Seriously Raury is my new hero. You can read further about what he was thinking here in this interview.
