clickbait article on fb: “white model apologizes after (unknowingly) appearing on the cover of ‘blackhair.’“
the second fucking sentence of the article: “However half-white, half-Malaysian model Emily Bador was pretty surprised to see her photo on the latest issue of Blackhair magazine…”
The British magazine Blackhair calls itself “the black woman’s style bible." On the cover of the December/January 2017 issue is a woman with what looks like a large red afro. But there’s just one thing: The model isn’t black.
This fact came to light when the model herself, Emily Bador, who describes herself as half English and half Malaysian, posted the magazine cover on her own Instagram on Monday. She told fans that the image was not used with her permission and that it was taken when she was 15 years old. She also apologized to black women specifically for taking this cover opportunity from a black or mixed race woman.
