How do these things keep happening?
You would think people learned their lesson after Dolce & Gabbana’s questionable collection, but not Anthropology!
The retailer released this Trinket & Treasure Candlestick (above), with a $400 price tag and described it as "one of a kind." What they forgot to mention is that it's totally racist.
There's no denying the imagery depicted in one figure, in particular, is slave-like. You’d think a store named Anthropology would understand that!
Thankfully, according to Anthro’s website, the candlestick is no longer available, either because they sold out or it was pulled.
If it was pulled though, we’re wondering why it isn’t taken down completely.
