Cheryl Tweedy’s spokesperson has responded to comments made by model Munroe Bergdorf about her removal from L’Oréal’s diversity-centric advertising campaign.
Munroe made headlines recently when she was fired by the beauty brand over comments she made about institutional racism, in the wake of last month’s Charlottesville protests.
Making an appearance on the BBC’s ‘Victoria Derbyshire’ show, Munroe called out L’Oréal for allowing Cheryl to continue as one of the faces of the campaign, given her assault on toilet attendant Sophie Amogbokpa in 2003.
“I shouldn’t be sacked for calling out racism when I was in a campaign that was meant to be championing diversity,” she said.
“Especially when I was speaking about the violence of white people, but they’ve got Cheryl Cole on the campaign and she was actively convicted for punching a black women in the face.”
