Oreal for racism remarks will be face of rival campaign

A transgender model fired by L’Oreal for making comments about systemic racism on social media has been chosen as the face of a new campaign by a rival beauty brand.

Munroe Bergdorf was sacked by the French company last month after making the comments on Facebook in the wake of events last month in Charlottesville. On Wednesday the British firm Illamasqua announced she was fronting its new campaign based around gender fluidity.

But Munroe doesn’t just stop there. She speaks out about the issues that affect not just her but the rest of our generation, seeking to improve the society we live in.”

Bergdorf’s now deleted Facebook post asked that white people become aware of any unconscious racism: “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.”

One of the new faces of L’Oreal’s new diversity initiative, Bergdorf was the company’s first transgender representative. The inclusion of Bergdorf, who is both black and transgender, was viewed as a big step forward for the beauty industry, with many viewing her recent firing as symptomatic of how disposable diversity is within the industry. In the wake of her sacking, the black model and DJ Clara Amfo quit a L’Oreal campaign in solidarity.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”

Bergdorf has been a longstanding collaborator with Illamasqua. Following the backlash in August, Illamasqua defended her, writing on Twitter: “We don’t stand or accept any form of racism, but we also believe Bergdorf comments have been edited out of context by a certain media title (who we won’t bother naming) without telling a true story.”

L’Oreal ended its relationship with the 30-year-old for the comments, which it said were “at odds” with its values. Bergdorf says she has since had threats of assault, rape and death.

Speaking to the Guardian earlier this month, Bergdorf said: “The most ridiculous thing is that you call out racism and they respond with more racism. It just doesn’t make any sense.”

She added: “I don’t regret what I said. I’m an activist. Being an activist means calling people out, not just saying what everyone else is saying and what everyone else wants to think. L’Oreal knew that when they hired me.”
