Kyle Kuzma destroys Burberry for clothing with noose around neck

Kyle Kuzma

NBA players are very particular about their style and Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma is no exception.

The 23-year-old recently took to Twitter to call out a fashion miscue from a company called Burberry after they released an outfit that contained a noose around the neck. The boutique brand was trying to make a statement, but failed, and was forced to apologize.

Whatever decision making was involved in the process of releasing the controversial hoodie was, it proved to not be a good one – and now 528K people have seen it thanks to the sophomore forward’s initiative. That is a lot of people who might not have otherwise seen it.

It does not take a fashion genius to figure out that having a noose on a hoodie should never have seen the light of day. It probably should not have even been said out loud in a meeting, but both happened.

The negative publicity could probably lead to a restructuring and a system could be in place where the responsible individuals are held accountable for decisions like this. Right now, this is just bad PR.

It is good to see the fashion-forward NBA players speaking out against the awful fashion decisions. A noose on a hoodie is the opposite of good fashion. Thanks to this tweet, Burberry better subscribe to the philosophy that all press is good press. Even the bad press.
