Armani Mislabels African American Female As African American Male On Instagram, Prompting MORE Racism Accusations!!

Armani makes HUGE mistake on Instagram, prompting instant backlash!!

This is super awkward for SO many reasons!

Armani was called out a few months ago by Naomi Campbell and Iman for showing racism on the runway, and while that seems to have improved since then, they just made a HUGE social media error that has people angry all over again!

On Monday, someone in charge of the fashion label’s Instagram account posted a seemingly innocent picture of Alfre Woodard wearing a Giorgio Armani dress.

However, the caption mis-labeled the African American female actress as an African American male actor Idris Elba…whaaaaa???

This is what the caption said:

“Idris Elba posing in a gorgeous Giorgio @armani dress at the 5th Annual Governors Awards.”

While this may have been a simple human error, it couldn’t have come at worse timing.

The racial profiling incident at Barneys is currently being dealt with by none other than Jay Z himself, and Naomi’s Diversity Coalition is still fighting for more diversity throughout the fashion world.

The inciting image on Armani’s Instagram account has already been deleted, but not after a plethora of angry followers took a screen capture of the post.

Yikes!!

See the image above, and see a close up of the caption (with readers' comments) below:
