Surprised L'Oreal actually sacked her so quickly.
They go on and on about being a company about diversity but they don't want hear what a minority has to say regarding systemic racism. I don't think it was in that article you link but she clarified herself and it was in regards to the Charlottesville shooting.

They just took what she said at face value instead of talking to her about it and did a quick clean up PR job that isn't going to backfire too much. Only a select few will boycott but they have other products that women of color will still use.

You know how this stuff works with companies that rely on image to generate consumer revenue. The fact they gave her the job in the first place speaks volumes for them.

She f-cked up and they did the right PR thing considering the current racial climate. Her coming out after the fact trying to "wipe up spilt milk" is too little to late.

I'm 100% sure that if one of their white models went public with a statement condeming BLM or the counter protesters in Charlottesville, she'd be let go too.

Right now this country is a powder keg of racial divide. L'Oreal did what they had to do under the circumstances. They are a publically traded company afterall.

I don't think they would if they simply condemned an organisation like BLM but if they posted 'I don't have energy to talk about the criminal violence of black people any more. Yes ALL black people.' then she definitely would be let go for that. And we wouldn't be on here asking whether it was justified or whether the comments are racist.

What people are those then mate? Not even sure what the point of this post is or what it means. Strange that you would just pick that one bit of my post when if anything I was actually disagreeing with what Chules said.

If someone had posted a comment condemning a group/organisation/movement, whatever the **** you want to call it, then I doubt they'd have been sacked just for that. Whether it's BLM or another group, I don't think they'd be sacked for it. I do think they'd have been sacked for making a comment about an entire race of people like this woman did.

Thanks.

lots of boo hoo'ing over racism against white people as if it's a thing that matters

But I guess you can't insult your customers like that

This story is uninteresting

That's some serious false equivalence there. Also, I'm not sure how it's about the US given that we're talking about a French company and a British model.

All black people are African American.
