Following the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests that have sprung up across the nation, some brands are beginning to speak up about racism and police brutality. One of the most surprising brands to make a powerful statement may be a childhood fave from the past: Bratz Dolls.
On Sunday, May 31, Bratz shared their statement on Instagram, writing, “Our hearts break for George Floyd and the Black community. Bratz has always been and always will be about diversity and inclusivity. It is all of our responsibility to take a stand against racism, and we can’t call ourselves inclusive while staying silent about these social injustices right in front of us.”
They then shared a popular quote from Desmond Tutu (“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor”) and encouraged their followers to sign the Justice for George Floyd petition.
