Launching his Barneys holiday collection has not been easy for Jay-Z and now that the product is out, the drama saga continues. With fans now voicing opinions of the lavish line, which ranges from the high hundreds to about $58,000, the mogul’s core following is upset at the fact that the collection is geared toward those in a much higher tax bracket.
Even though Jay tried to make amends after deciding to proceed with the launch in the middle of the store’s racial controversy, with plans to take on a leadership role in Barneys’ specifically convened racial profiling council and plans to also donate 100% of the proceeds to his charity, fans are still not satisfied. Now voicing their frustrations through social media, here’s what some fans had to say:

Jay Z’s holiday collection for Barneys is highly expensive! Anyone wearing this expensive collection deserves to be arrested by the police!
