January 8th was a great success!
The spontaneous gathering attracted thousands of Hong Kongers, including many young and elderly non-activists, to say no to the photo ban Dolce & Gabana imposed upon the Hong Kongners and Hong Kongners only. Unfortunately, most news reports fail to address the racial controversy that the ban has sparked, bewildering international readers from understanding the true nature of the photo-shooting event.
What more disappointing is that Dolce & Gabanna only regrets, but is not apologetic, of the ban, claiming that those who made racial remarks and stopped locals from taking pictures were not their staff. Here is the intriguing point: Why would anyone, Dolce & Gabanna's staff and what not, would take actions without the order from this infamous Italian store? Interestingly,security guards never banned anyone in the streets from taking pictures of neighboring world-famous stores.
Dolce & Gabanna needs to apologize to the people of Hong Kong for racial discrimination!
