Fans defend G-Dragon from racist comments seen on Chanel's 'Gabrielle bag campaign'

The luxurious brand Chanel recently uploaded their campaign featuring Big Bang's G-Dragon on Facebook with the caption that reads "In Macau with G-Dragon, for CHANEL's GABRIELLE bag campaign."

However, instead of accepting the level of diversity any industry requires and actually appreciating the campaign, some commenters couldn't help but post negative and racist remarks on the video. One comment reads, "Sorry this isn't Chanel. She was French. Vive la France." In addition to this, other comments were seen that equated him being from China simply because he was Asian and that he simply did not fit the Chanel image. 

In light of these kinds of negative energy people were spewing, many fans have come out to support the artist but also to shut down any racist comments they saw. With the exception of comments such as above, the majority showed much appreciation and welcomed the advertisement with an open arm.

With the rise of Korean music and its entertainment industry, people across the globe have started to acknowledge their talents and artistry. Unfortunately, with popularity comes negative and ignorant reactions such as when BTS won their award at the Billboard Music Awards and when Jay Park was featured on an NBA Facebook page for attending a playoff game. However, despite the hurdles these artists face on a daily basis, they continue to succeed and reach new heights.

    Well.. all I have to say is that this video looks like the teaser for a new Dvd rather than a Chanel campaign lmao.. and I don't agree with "He acts as if the bag bothers him".. like wtf he walks like that all the time

    Racism is a no no, (I love GD, but...) if they were going to make fun of something it should have been his hair!  #murderthemullet #GDWHY

    Racist comments aside, i just noticed that his 'son' song min-ho of Winner (For those of y'all who don't know) got the exact same mullet haircut in New Journey to the West as part of his punishment. The resemblance LOLOLOL.

    I think GD really fits Chanel's brand image!! Lol, and who are those people commenting as if they are the fashion directors of Chanel...

    Some people never change, but they don't have to. As long as Chanel and other companies don't stop using popular celebrities of other races to model their products.
