WTF?! Armani Doesn’t Know The Difference Between Alfre Woodard & Idris Elba
Thank goodness for the quick hands of Akoto Ofori-Atta of The Root! She posted a screen cap of a photo from Armani’s Instagram account that the clothing company had captioned “Idris Elba poses in a gorgeous Giorgio @armani dress at the 5th Annual Governors Awards.”
Wait! Idris in a dress?! Say it ain’t so! Oh good, it ain’t. The person in the photo was actually Alfre Woodard. Armani received a plethora of disdainful comments from their followers, some calling out Armani for thinking all Black people look alike and others laughing it off as if Idris was a crossdresser. Armani has since corrected the faux pas, but not before Black Twitter created a hashtag to ridicule the fashion giant, #ArmaniCaptions. Check out some of the most hilarious posts from the hashtag!
