Black Twitter is buzzing this morning, as it discusses the late and former First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, also known as "Jackie O." Jackie O is generally seen as one of the most popular and revered First Ladies in US history.
But Black Twitter is dragging her for filth.
It's not clear how or why Black Twitter has chosen to focus on Jackie O, but many are calling the former First Lady a "racist."
Jackie O was known for her beauty and grace, but most notably for her impeccable style. According to many students of history Jackie O never gave credit to her African American clothing designer, who conceptualized and made many of her dresses. Instead of naming her designer, Ann Lowe, never mind giving her credit couture designs which would become iconic, Jackie O simply referred to her as her "colored dressmaker."
Here are some of the posts:
Anne Lowe's designs helped make Jackie O an international fashion icon. On the day of her husband's assassination, one of the images most remembered outside of the killing was what she wore - a pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat.
Even after her death, she ranks as one of the most popular and recognizable First Ladies, and in 1999 she was listed as one of Gallup's Most-Admired Men and Women of the 20th century.
