Default L'Oreal sacks transgender model after comments on white people

Europe leading the way, showing the castrated Americans how to deal with sheltered morons.
Quote:
PARIS (Reuters) - French cosmetics giant L‘Oreal sacked its first transgender model to appear on a British advertising campaign after she described all white people as racist on Facebook.

London-based model Munroe Bergdorf had announced on her Facebook page on August 27 that she was to be part of the French cosmetics brand’s new advertising campaign celebrating diversity.

In an online message that later appeared on Friday to have been deleted, Bergdorf said, according to the Daily Mail newspaper: “Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.”

L‘Oreal’s UK unit said on its Twitter page it had decided to terminate her contract: “L‘Oreal champions diversity. Comments by Munroe Bergdorf are at odds with our values and so we have decided to end our partnership with her.”

In a post on her page on Friday, Bergdorf criticized the Daily Mail article and sought to defend her comments, which she said were a reaction to the violence of white supremacists in Charlottesville in the United States.

“When I stated that ‘all white people are racist’, I was addressing that fact that western society as a whole, is a SYSTEM rooted in white supremacy - designed to benefit, prioritize and protect white people before anyone of any other race,” she said.

When I look at the complexion of antifa groups and many liberals this model might actually have a point.

Though I'm glad the French are at least consistent in their "diversity" hysteria which is ironically a unicultural (western) phenomenon. Here in the states it's merely code for "get whitey".

L'Oreal stays winnings.. Gets good PR for hiring Transgender model then gets good PR for firing Transgender model because she's racist.

idk if that could of worked out any better for them.

She/He was fired for racist and retarded comments, not for being trans. Anyone saying "all whites are racist" would have gotten backlash.
