“Marc Jacobs appears unfazed after his LA store is looted”
June 3, 2020 | 11:20am
Video posted to Twitter shows one glass door of the Melrose Place designer store completely smashed and another partly damaged, with the spray-painted message, “F–k capitalism.” The inside of the store appears near-empty.
The large placard reading “Marc Jacobs” at the entrance had the designers’ name replaced with those of George Floyd — the black man whose police-custody death in Minneapolis sparked national outrage last week — and Sandra Bland — the black woman who was found hanged in her Texas jail cell in 2015, days after being detained by cops during a traffic stop.
The label — and the 57-year-old designer himself — both posted a photo of the placard Sunday with the caption, “A life cannot be replaced. Black Lives Matter.”
Earlier, Jacobs posted a message saying, “NEVER let them convince you that broken glass or property is violence….Property can be replaced, human lives cannot.”
