Everyone loves to hate a fashion retailer faux pas, and this week's wrath is directed at Forever21 with their weird take on "Wakanda Forever," the iconic quote from Black Panther (the movie and the comics).GiphyThe tweenybopper paradise decided to put their Black Panther tribute sweater on a white dude with a blunt bang who looks kind of like an off-brand Troye Sivan. Just in case @Forever21 tries to delete this later.... pic.twitter.com/8czypjMutr— LaBlaq (@LoveAndShalom) December 18, 2018 A blonde guy? Really? #NotMyKing. GiphyWas this the only guy you had available?Wakanda bullshit is this, @Forever21? pic.twitter.com/S4ZVryPXWB— Frederick Joseph (@FredTJoseph) December 18, 2018 Of all the models and all the sweaters, you decided on this combination?Common sense would have a black model represent Black Panther, no? Perhaps Michael B. Jordan, please?GiphyWhile anyone can be a Black Panther fan, this guy so white he's translucent probably shouldn't be the face of the fandom.

Someone approved this and thought this was going to work. 😂 https://t.co/aWefYUeBfY— Cops Are Absurd Here (@sanefacade) December 18, 2018 Chadwick Boseman's cool too!Giphy Naturally, there was backlash to the backlash, as people began to point out that Wakanda isn't real.I’m still wearing #Forever21 . Ya pressed over not a got damn thing. Has everyone forgotten #Wakanda and it’s people are fictional created by a white mans vision ? Goooodbye.— Totdollaz 🦄 (@HiqhOffMyAllure) December 19, 2018 Why are people mad at @Forever21 using a white model? Some of you man complaining probably never shop there and why youre mad over someone sporting a wakanda forever shirt? The black panther franchise and merch Is not exclusive to just black people. Grow up it's not that serious. pic.twitter.com/XNmAHI3Dch— Joni-louise (@joniibek) December 19, 2018 https://twitter.com/lunaticshii/status/1075187027308670977Even with the backlash to the backlash, the backlash was enough to get Forever 21 to delete the picture from their site.The Root reports that the company sent out a half-assed apology: Forever 21 takes feedback on our products and marketing extremely seriously. We celebrate all superheroes with many different models of various ethnicities and apologize if the photo in question was offensive in anyway. Anyhoo, the head honchos at Forever 21 definitely need some black friends.
