Before firing her from the high-visibility gig, L'Oreal considered Munroe Bergdorf, 29, its first transgender model, as the face of modern diversity and one of its brand ambassadors for its current advertising campaign.
In a now-deleted Facebook rant, Bergdorf, among other things, accused white people of being "the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth," The Sun of London reported. The Daily Mail was apparently the first news outlet to carry the story.
Surprisingly perhaps, and particularly notable in these politically correct times, L'Oreal -- which is the world's largest cosmetics company -- took swift action in terminating the model's contract as explained in the following statement.
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.
In a lengthy Facebook follow-up embedded below, the London-based Bergdorf claimed that she was reacting to what happened in Charlottesville, Va., and the media took her words out of context. She also insisted that western society is entirely rooted in white supremacy and that whites are socialized to be racist from an early age.
According to the Facebook page, Bergdorf works as a DJ and activist along with pursuing a career in modeling. She began living as a woman at age 18, the Daily Mail reported, but started taking physician-supervised hormones in 2013.
Munroe Bergdorf, who said during the interview that her mother is white, tangled with Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan in the video below. Currently writing for the Daily Mail, Morgan is a gun-control obsessed liberal who failed as Larry King's replacement on CNN, but he forcefully challenged the model about her original Facebook post, including asserting that Bergdorf was creating more division in society. He also deemed Bergdorg's patriarchy-based claim that women can't be sexist as "a load of nonsense."
Parenthetically, despite disagreeing with Donald Trump on the issues, Piers Morgan (a past Celebrity Apprentice winner) has vigorously defended the president in various encounters with the hostile, globalist British media.
As an aside, the progressive movement in both the U.S. and Europe generally elevates diversity, tolerance, and inclusion as primary objectives. In general, however, it seems to show little reluctance to bash white people (particularly "old" white males) on the basis of skin color. Racial discrimination of any kind is, of course, illegal in the U.S. and in virtually all, if not all, industrialized countries.
