FASHION Gucci

Canadian actor Avan Jogia is not happy with Gucci’s latest fashion show.

Jogia, who is best known for his time on the TV show ‘Victorious,’ is calling out the fashion brand for failing to use South Asian models in a runway show for their new culturally and ethnically diverse line.

“Yo.. @gucci ... I mess with you guys... but this isn't a good look for you... could you not find a brown model?” he tweeted, along with a now controversial photo of a white Gucci model wearing a turban.


The actor also called out people of colour who appropriate others’ cultures, as was the case in this fashion show.

“And please, other people of colour, this happens to ALL of us, say something even if it doesn't apply to you personally. I got you, if you got me.”


The actor’s father is British-Indian. Avan Jogia was born in Vancouver.
