Rapper Boosie Badazz had some choice words for Black people who were queued in line outside a Gucci store.

In a livestream video, Boosie yelled, "Gucci don't like Black people. I don't know why y'all in that line!"

Walking swiftly away, Boosie continued, "Y'all stupid as a f***. Gucci don't like black people. Y'all still in the line. Y'all stupid as a MF. Y'all stupid as a MF. All y'all."

Boosie, Tip "T.I." Harris, and other rappers called on Black people to boycott the French luxury retailer for selling what they believed was a "racist sweater."

The black balaclava sweater, which retailed for $890, appeared to mimic blackface.

Gucci removed the sweater from stores and issued an apology in 2019.

Celebrity stylist Law Roach says the looting of luxury stores such as Gucci and Chanel was a "f*ck you to a hierarchy, to the people that made me feel like, 'You don't belong here.'"

Roach, who styles celebrities such as Ciara Wilson (pictured left), Tiffany Haddish and Zendaya, says looters aren't motivated to rob luxury stores to keep the merchandise.

Roach told Page Six: "I don't think that any of those kids there, or any person that was black, went into the stores with that motivation of just having it just to have it," he said.

He suggested that the looters intend to pawn or sell the items to feed their families.

"I don't think people are going to go to Rolex to keep a Rolex. I think they're going to Rolex to steal a Rolex so they can feed their f–king family."

Deon Cole would like the opportunity to explain the effeminate Gucci outfit he wore to the 51st Annual NAACP Image Awards this past weekend.

Cole was ridiculed and insulted in every way possible after he wore a blue crushed velvet suit with bell bottom pants to the awards show.

The visual was too much for some women to handle. The men took Cole's attire personally - as if his attire was an affront to their manhood.

Cole has been receiving death threats on social media.

Cole took to Instagram on Monday to explain that he will address the controversy on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Cole, 48, is an actor, comedian best known for his role on the TV sitcom Black-ish.

Questions: What do you think he will say? How can he explain this to your satisfaction? Are you ready to concede another masculine Black man to the other side?
