Kidult brings Jean Touitou's controversial statements back into the spotlight as he tags A.P.C.'s 112 Rue Vieille du Temple location. Instead of leaving his own moniker, however, this time around he's taken to writing the word "Niggas" - in reference to Touitou's cancelled "Last Niggas in Paris" Timberland collaboration - across the facade of the shop. The graffiti artist shared his latest work on Instagram alongside the caption "Latin adj. "niger" contemptuous, offensive and racism term for a black person. #lastniggasinparis #kidult #apc #openyourmind #youaretheslave #whiteprivilege".

Another piece was also created in regards to the controversy, featuring a stencil of the words "COLORED ENTRANCE Only," harking back to a shameful time in U.S. history when segregation was a normal part of daily life.

Like the rest of Kidult's work, the line between bringing attention solely upon himself and offering poignant commentary on pop culture is very, very fine. We're curious to hear your take so let us know what you think of the two pieces in the comments section below.
