US DESIGNER TAGS TRUMP AS A ‘KU KLUX KLAN’ TYRANT IN PARIS SHOW
A Paris fashion week show has called for the end to the "tyranny" of US President Donald Trump, Fiachra Gibbons reported for the Agence France-Presse (AFP).
American artist Sterling Ruby compared Trump to the racist Ku Klux Klan in his women's Paris show called "Veil Flag," in which a black model was draped in a distressed denim version of the Stars and Stripes.
Ruby's streetwear brand, S.R. Studio. LA. CA., made its fashion week debut in the French capital late Monday with a film featuring the flag and a spoken word poem. "Where are we, and what has happened?" the poem began.
"No sovereignty, no empathy. A flag worn down, covered in hardship marching against leaderless leadership. "Tread on me... Light me on fire... End the tyranny of the President Grand Dragon," it added. The Grand Dragon is one of the most senior members of the KKK, which despite its long history of racist violence is still legal and thought to be active in 41 US states.
