As the music on Taylor Swift’s latest album, “Folklore,” continues to receive praise on social media, the goods for her latest release have fallen on fire. Amira Rasool, founder of Black-owned retailer Folklore, has accused Swift of removing the company logo for album merchandise – and now Swift’s team is taking action.
Rasool posted about similar logos on her Instagram page last week. Her company is “an online concept store that delivers Africa and the best brands of contemporary diaspora stylists,” according to her Instagram.
Since then, Swift’s goods appear to have fallen “” from its Folklore brand. On Thursday, Swift sent a tweet to Rasool, saying it would make a contribution to Rasool’s company and donate it to the New Fashion Council, which will launch soon, which, according to its website , “was founded to represent and ensure the advancement of black individuals in the fashion and beauty industry.”
InStyle reported that Rasool said her lawyer had been in contact with Swift’s manager over the merchandise and that the team took “quick action” to correct the problem. After the merchandise was changed, Rasool praised Swift and her team “for recognizing the merchandise damage caused to my company brand.”
“I admit she has been a strong advocate for women defending their creative rights, so it was nice to see that her team is on the same page,” Rasool tweeted.
Rasool did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CBS News.
