Last night, designer Kenneth Cole responded to yesterday’s “boots on the ground” Twitter controversy with an Instagram video that’s a bit bolder than expected: no retreat, no surrender, no apology.
While he claims that the purpose of such controversial messages is to encourage global “dialogue” about difficult issues like AIDS and armed conflict, the tweet still looked like a combination promo/ploy for attention from here. What was with the #footwear hashtag?
At the same time, he certainly owned it, didn’t he?
So…bold move or deflection?
