GLW: What are they up to now?

Back in March, it was revealed that Gothic Lolita Wigs (and their sister brands Rockstar Wigs, Cosplay Wigs, Dolluxe and Dollite) were accused of being racist towards African-Americans. On top of featuring their Jezebel wigs in a photoshoot featuring RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Coco drinking Arizona Tea and eating watermelons (not to mention how "Jezebel" was a 19th century term for a "loose woman"), they've also lightened models' skin tones to be more "doll-like" and even created to feature the same wigs on black women.

People have also said that the wigs have gone down the toilet in terms of quality, frizzing and tangling easily for something that could cost upwards of $70 USD. Not to mention shoddy customer service and allegations that they've pilfered ideas and designs from MintyMix.

Well no longer exists and when I typed in the web address, it just ported me straight to GLW (which is now apparently under the Dolluxe name). The Jezebel series is nowhere to be found and there's also a few new wig collections available for purchase (I have to admit, I kind of like the Hologram 12" and 22" series...)

Still, it makes me wonder if they truly have redeemed themselves or if one should still avoid them like the plague. Has anyone purchased stuff from them or interacted with them in any way, shape or form?
