MAC’s photo of a model wearing its lipstick

What did I say Thursday about white people and racism? I suggested that they stop being racist. And trolling black websites. On Wednesday, trolls did what they do best: troll … of course, but this time it was cosmetic company MAC’s Instagram page.

The company uploaded a photo of a black female model taken during a fashion show at New York Fashion Week. The model’s full lips were painted with a MAC lipstick shade. Apparently her lips offended people and they left racist comments about the photo.


One commenter wrote that black women will never be as beautiful as white woman, and blah, blah, blah, I’m racist, blah, blah, blah, I’m racist.

Of course, the clapback was in full effect, with women of all backgrounds joining forces to squash the haters.


Just another day on the Internet. Can’t even post a lipstick photo without people rearing their racist little heads.
