Hood Rich or just Poor Taste?

Screen Shot 2013-11-18 at 2.42.29 PMSo it’s the name of a shoe… That makes it okay right? Well Jeffrey Campbell says yea its okay… Today Jeffrey Campbell posted a picture on their Instagram of a model wearing their “Hood Rich” Shoe. While it is the name of the shoe Instagram users are offended.

The picture and the name together… Is that just too much to say “Oh, it’s just the name of a shoe.”?

Earlier H&M had a similar issue with their “Ghetto Fabulous” line which they cancelled due to the level of backlash received… So Is this okay?
