自从宣布将品牌最新系列命名为「Last Ni**as in Paris」之后，法国时尚品牌 A.P.C. 创始人 Jean Touitou 便引起了不少争议，并直接导致合作伙伴 Timberland 宣布与之解除合作关系，连早前曝光的 2015 秋冬合作系列也宣布取消发售。其官方申明表示：
Yesterday we became aware of the offensive remarks made by Jean Touitou during his A.P.C. Fall Menswear show in Paris. We have chosen to immediately terminate our involvement with the A.P.C. brand, including the footwear collaboration we had planned for this fall.
Simply stated, this kind of language and approach is in complete contrast with our values. Timberland seeks to collaborate with designers and brands who are at the forefront of lifestyle trends; equally important, they must also share our values. We will not tolerate offensive language or racial slurs of any kind being associated with the Timberland brand.
随著事态的发展，Jean Touitou 终于意识到问题严重性，并立即通过《GQ》对自己的言论发表了以下道歉声明：
When describing our brand’s latest collaboration, I spoke recklessly using terms that were both ignorant and offensive. I apologize and am deeply regretful for my poor choice of words, which are in no way a reflection of my personal views.
