Twitter Users Slam Fashion Designer Virgil Abloh's Donation Amount

Fashion designer Virgil Abloh, who is the artistic director for Louis Vuitton menswear, is under fire for his donation amount to the (F)EMPOWER Community Bond Fund amid the George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter movement.

He posted to his Instagram Story on Sunday (May 31) about his $50 donation to the organization, but many believed the amount was too little for the amount he likely earns.

“I can’t believe I donated more money than virgil abloh and I’m the one that’s unemployed,” one user wrote on their Twitter account.

“Virgil Abloh, well known black fashion designer, CEO & founder of off white a brand that has collaborated with big names such as Nike, Louis Vuitton, etc. Donated only $50 for charity. TO PUT THAT INTO PERSPECTIVE HIS FUCKING SOCKS ARE WORTH MORE THAN HIS DONATION!!,” another user posted with a link to socks that cost $60.

So far, Virgil Abloh has not responded to fans who are upset with his donation amount.

See the receipt Virgil posted to his Instagram Story…
