L’Oreal Fires Its First Transgender Model After She Proclaimed "ALL White People Are Racist"

Munroe Bergdorf in action.

Days after she was announced as L'Oreal's first transgender model, Munroe Bergdorf launched an extraordinary rant declaring all white people racist.

L'Oreal confirmed the 29-year-old British star, who appeared in its recent '#allworthit' campaign with Cheryl Cole and Katie Piper, has been dropped from her new role.

In a Facebook rant that she now deleted, Bergdorf wrote: "Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. Because most of ya'll don't even realize or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of color.

"Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggression to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this shit. Come see me when you realise that racism isn't learned, it's inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege. Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth… then we can talk."

Now, on a Facebook follow-up, she says her racially-motivated comments stemmed specifically from the Charlottesville protests.

I'm pretty sure if I said the same thing and my boss heard about it, I'd be asked to leave, too.

... because modelling is such a profoundly wholesome and moral industry to pursue a career in.

Come on, people, opinions of professional pretty people (actors, models) are no more relevant than opinions of random people on the street. Not worth listening to them unless they have some chops independent of their pretty-career.

I am not racist, I'm not even white, I'm more meaty pink with green spots, (when I'm calm). Also all humans look alike to me. with those two beady little eyes (scary) and those 2 hand things and those things you call feet, (Gross) and those bones in your backs, you know how hard they are to digest?

I have been saying it for years. Liberals tend to be some of the most intolerant assholes on the planet.

People who say stuff like that don't understand how racist it is to say it.

1) That looks nothing like a woman.

2) If you wish to retain employment, you shouldn't say wildly stupid shit.

Sort of like saying all transgenders are idiots. Stop and think before acting the fool.
