Love Dolls Kill? Shop These Black Owned Alternatives Instead!

If you don’t already know, Dolls Kill is a very problematic brand. If you Google Dolls Kill + Controversy ,  you’ll get pages and pages of results dating back to the brand’s beginning. Lauded by Influencers and YouTubers as one of the best places to get your rave, alternative, baddie,  and cutesy OOTDs, Dolls Kill undeniably has cute clothes. But they also steal designs from independent artists, lose your orders, and most importantly, took a pro-police stance during the L.A Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s murder last summer. Dolls Kill has a long history of being anti-Black, which means they need to be called out and we all need to stop giving them our money. As consumers, we show support for businesses, and the beliefs of their owners by choosing to contribute, or not, to their profits. Let’s show Dolls Kill that their beliefs are hateful and not accepted and buy from some of these Black owned businesses instead! Clothes are cuter when they aren’t sold by brands espousing hate and profiting off of stolen designs!
