The lookbook for Tyler, The Creator’s Golf Wang’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection dropped yesterday, and there is one piece in the collection that has people talking. One of the T-shirts features a rainbow colored logo with the words “Golf Pride Worldwide” encircling it, which doesn’t seem like a big deal at first glance, but the message is actually pretty major.
In an article for his Golf Media app, Tyler explains that he took the logo from a Neo-Nazi group called “White Pride Worldwide” and added the LGBT pride rainbow to flip the imagery on its head. “What if a black guy wore this logo on a shirt? Would he be promoting self hate? Would he be taking the power out of a shape? What if a gay guy wore this on a shirt? Would he [be] promoting Homophobia? Then BAM! I had it.”
