Meetpie reports that a recent event hosted by Puma has courted controversy for its gang/drug culture theme. Guests were invited with wads of fake £50 notes and so-called ‘trap’ phones used by drug dealers. Inside the House of Hustle party, which was held in an abandoned Soho mansion, there were blacked out windows and dirty mattresses.
Puma said they were just trying to “celebrate youth culture” and that hustling is just another way of saying “hard work”. Was this event in bad taste? Or are people over reacting?
