L’Oréal Fires Transgender Model Munroe Bergdorf After Facebook Rant
Over the years, we’ve seen a LOT of people lose their jobs over the racist things they say online. In most cases, the people fired have been white bean sprout bigots, but apparently people of color are susceptible to punishment too now. Gueses when you work for “the man”, social justice warrior-ing can cost you.
According to Metro, makeup conglomerate L’Oréal has fired their very first transgender model, Munroe Bergdorf, for lettin’ the Draco sing against racism and white people in a Facebook post:
‘Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.
‘Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s***.
‘Come see me when you realise that racism isn’t learned, it’s inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege.
‘Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth… then we can talk.
‘Until then stay acting shocked about how the world continues to stay f***** at the hands of your ancestors and your heads that remain buried in the sand with hands over your ears.’
Do you see any lies?
Here’s how L’Oréal responded:
‘L’Oréal supports diversity and tolerance towards all people irrespective of their race, background, gender and religion.
‘The L’Oréal Paris True Match campaign is a representation of these values and we are proud of the diversity of the Ambassadors who represent this campaign.
‘We believe that the recent comments by Munroe Bergdorf are at odds with those values, and as such we have taken the decision to end the partnership with her.
‘L’Oréal remains committed to celebrating diversity and breaking down barriers in beauty.’
