A racist boomerang?
Iconic French fashion label Chanel is celebrating the launch of its Spring-Summer pre-collection with the sale of a chic Chanel-branded boomerang.
Followers of high-fashion can now purchase the latest in vogue indigenous hunting weapons for only $1,930 each.
The luxury haute couture brand describes the boomerangs as 'black with wood and resin' and each have the distinctive Chanel symbol emblazoned in the middle.
The interesting choice for Chanel's luxury sport collection has sparked complaints from confused shoppers and the indigenous community who claim it is cultural appropriation.
'Cultural appropriation hits a new low - I sincerely hope that Chanel is donating all the profits to underprivileged Aboriginal communities,' one person wrote.
