Nothing like a little controversy to start your week.
AKOO, T.I.'s clothing line, has faced much criticism since word spread this weekend about the “controversial” billboard standing in Newark. The brand has responded to the resulting brouhaha.
"The AKOO brand has always aimed to inspire individualism and creativity. Our advertising campaign was not created to offend or insult anyone but to simply provoke dialogue and thought regarding male/female sexuality within urban culture. We hope that as more of the campaign is debuted, people will see the multifaceted personality of AKOO.”
