A group of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show models have been slammed after a video emerged appearing to show several of the young women saying the N-word while singing along to rapper Cardi B’s hit song ‘Bodak Yellow.’
The short clip shows several models, most of whom appear to be white, dancing around in their custom made robes backstage before the show in Shanghai to the chart topping song and rap the lyric: ‘I don’t wanna choose / And I’m quick, cut a n***a off, so don’t get comfortable.’
It’s unclear exactly which women are rapping in the video, since it pans around the room. But it starts by showing model Karlie Kloss for a few seconds; it’s unclear if she rapped in the video.
‘There are too many nonblack people in this video for the N word to be that loud,’ one Twitter user wrote.
‘If you’re not black, don’t say the N word. Point. Blank. Period,’ another person tweeted.
Another Twitter user noted: ‘Nah. That n-word was too loud and clear for there only to be one black girl in this room’.
One woman even called for the models to be fired.
As soon as it went online, many social media users slammed the models and condemned their use of the word
Another person agreed and tweeted: ‘Oh! I see they said the n-word so freely. They all gotta go.’
But one Twitter user noticed that among the group of women, model Devon Windsor did not open her mouth when the racial slur appeared in the song.
‘The safe one is @DevWindsor,’ the woman tweeted alongside a photo of the blonde model standing still as her colleagues dance around her.
