Singer Domino Kirke Steps Away From Her Birthing Company After Racism Accusations

Singer Domino Kirke, the wife of Penn Badgley and sister of Girls actress Jemima Kirke, is stepping away as a doula and co-creator of her company Carriage House Birth after the company was accused of racism.

It started when birth worker, writer and activist ShiShi Rose posted on her Instagram about her experience at the company, writing, “I will no longer be teaching with Carriage House Birth. I cant be in business with white people that don’t prioritize anti racism in the foundation of their business…Hiring Black bodies, and visually displaying Black bodies on your platforms is NOT anti racism work. Using Black bodies to gain money/better your business while not doing any anti racism work is peak colonization.”

Domino responded in her own post on Instagram, writing, “As you all know, 3 days ago anti-racist educator and activist Shishi Rose called out Carriage House Birth and myself. This week has been about pausing so I can really get behind what I say and do next. I didn’t trust myself to respond personally on social media right away. After a few days of consultations with mentors in my community, CHB has decided to pause on all trainings and offerings for the forseeable future. We will be offering full refunds to our clients and students,” the 36-year-old posted on Instagram, adding she is “committed to compensating Shishi Rose for the harm we caused her.”

Domino is currently pregnant and expecting a baby with Penn.
