In a tweet, in response to backlash after his $50 donation to the Black Lives Matter protest bail fund, clarifying that he donated $20,500, Virgil Abloh said

Yesterday I spoke out about how my stores and stores of friends were looted. I apologize that it seemed like my concern for those stores outweighed my concern for our right to protest injustice and express our anger and rage in this moment

I also joined a social media chain of friends who were matching $50 donations. I apologize that appeared to some as if that was my only donation to these important causes. As many have said, buildings are brick-and-mortar and material things can be replaced, people can’t. Black lives matter. In this moment, those other things don’t.
