Virgil Abloh, the director of Louis Vuitton’s Men’s wear, has been criticized for a donation he made to protesters in need of bail money after they were arrested for the social justice protests that are happening in the United States of America following the death of George Floyd.

“The Miami community – I’m crazy inspired. For kids in the streets that need bail funds for George Floyd protests,” he wrote.
His posted also indicated that he made a deposit of $50.
