[UPDATE BELOW] Of all the "hot new looks" for Fashion Week, this may be the most incendiary. Today an unidentified individual caused a slight sensation at Lincoln Center by arriving in KKK robes and toting a racist sign, which asserts some stupid shit about about how the KKK killed fewer people than those who've died from "black on black murder." We wonder if the other side of the sign says how many people get their asses kicked while walking around NYC dressed like the KKK?
One of the photos appears to have been taken on Amsterdam Avenue between 61st and 62nd Streets, outside the Amsterdam Houses. Other witnesses say the individual was walking all over Lincoln Center and the surrounding neighborhood. We'll update as more information becomes available, most likely through a video on Worldstar HipHop.
Update 5:10 p.m.: A tipster writes in: "The KKK guy up near Lincoln Center is probably this guy trying to raise profile for his documentary. The NYPD officers are most likely questioning him as they do not realize that NY Penal Law 240.35(4) (which gained attention around the time of the Pussy Riot protests) only applies to two or more masked individuals." Yup, seems like our guy! Guess the gentleman in the KKK costume is just misunderstood.
