Marc Jacobs faced MAJOR backlash after he featured predominately white models at his NYFW show rocking colorful dreadlocks.

Critics questioned the fashion designer’s choice not to use black models and even accused him of cultural appropriation and exploitation.

Jacbos took to Instagram on Sunday where he apologized for his “lack of sensitivity.”

“I thank you for expressing your feelings. I apologize for the lack of sensitivity unintentionally expressed by my brevity. I wholeheartedly believe in freedom of speech and freedom to express oneself though art, clothes, words, hair, music…EVERYTHING,” he wrote.

“Of course I do “see” color but I DO NOT discriminate. THAT IS A FACT! ” he added. “Please continue to express your feelings freely but do it kindly. Nothing is gained from spreading hate by name calling and bullying.”

Good job, Marc!
