Ladies and gentlefools. You know when I post back to back in a day, I mean business. Well I had to post about this as it came across my gchat. Afrobella sent me this link and I went AWF!!! Like cussing tourette’s.
A “Ghetto Fab Wig?” You have GOT to be kidding me! I just don’t know how to feel about this because it’s so blatantly ignorant that I kinda think it’s a prank they’re playing. But even if it’s a prank, it’s a bad one. I’m pretty sure it’s not a prank though. I was just trying to find something semi-decent to say. But…
Kohls! You have the unmitigated GALL to put a white woman in an afro wig and then label it “Ghetto Fab???” WHO IS YOU TALMTO?? WHO I ASK!??
And the chick in the picture is looking quite pleased with her newfound “down-dom.” Girl… BYE!
The hairhat the woman is wearing is the actual texture of some folks’ REAL hair. To label this as “ghetto fab” is just downright offensive. When did kinky hair texture become “ghetto?” Why am always shocked when I see something like this? The worst part is that someone has probably bought that wig for their Halloween costume. Someone melanin-deficient. Ugh. iCannot.
This is a complete and utter FAIL! Kohl’s is not bout that life. Whose dumb idea was this? Now I got an attitude. *rolls eyes*
And they coulda used some Carol’s Daughter or Juices & Berries on that wig. It’s kinda dry.
P.S. Check out Afrobella’s post about this wackness. She’s the sense to my ratchet.
AND ANOTHER THING!!! On second thought, Will Ferrell is prolly somewhere MAD that they’re calling HIS hair texture ghetto fab. I’m just saying.
EDIT: Kohl’s has removed the wig from their online store. BEHOLD THE POWER OF GOONING ON THE INTERNET!!! Afrobella SNATCHED their wig until they SNATCHED THAT WIG!!!
But here’s the BAD news. The wig is manufactured by California Costumes, and is apparently sold everywhere. Sears, Amazon, Buy.com included. How disappointing. They ALSO need to pull snatch this wig from their sites.
