Model Anok Yai Reacts To Carine Roitfeld's Comments; Urges Fashion Industry to Educate Themselves

Anok Yai is speaking out after Carine Roitfeld shared “tone-deaf” comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.

If you didn’t see, Carine, who is the EIC of Harper’s Bazaar, posted an image of her embracing Anok at an event, and when replying to a comment said that “Anok is not a black woman, she is my friend.”

In a piece for O magazine, Anok opened up about the comments and called them “jarring”.

“A lot of people have asked what my reaction was to an insensitive post from a friend of mine on Instagram last week. Of course, it was jarring—and it was just one of many similar microaggressions I’ve experienced during my time in fashion,” Anok wrote. “But the bigger point I’d like to focus on is that the fashion industry needs to become educated…and fast.”

She goes on, “Yet the industry seems to be depending on the Black community at large to educate them about Black history—as if we’re obligated to do so.”

“Black models should not have to teach working professionals how to deal with our hair and skin day in and day out. Educate yourself and come prepared. It’s your job. The world is changing right before our very eyes, and we won’t be tolerant of intolerance any longer.”

After her comments last week, Carine issued an apology.

“Miss you,” she captioned a post of the two of them together, later adding in a comment: “Anok is not a black woman, she is my friend.” That post was then later deleted, but not before going viral on social media.

“I would like to sincerely apologize for my previous comments that were posted on social media. My intent was to express love and support for my dear friend, Anok Yai – not to deafen my message. I realize that I caused further pain and hurt to the very community that I was looking to support,” she wrote in her apology.

“I am learning from this experience and will continue to use my platform and voice to create opportunities for change. Anok you are a beautiful, strong and talented Black woman and I meant absolutely no harm. I only meant to send a message of support to you and your family.”

“I vow to continue to focus my efforts and stand up to these injustices to support and further create opportunities that amplify the black community and their voices in the fight against systemic racism.”

Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Discrimination & Changing the System

Kim Kardashian gets a ’60s-inspired makeover on her new cover for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book Issue 16, which hits newsstands March 12!

Cher and Naomi Campbell are also featured on their own covers.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, the 73-year-old singer, and the 49-year-old model had to share with the mag:

Cher on being the pioneer of the “first name only” trend: “I never really thought of it as a power thing…One day I just realized, ‘I’m Cher. I don’t need anything else.’”

Kim on how being a mom inspired her prison reform work: “My evolution on this is probably some combination of growing up, getting married, having kids, and my life being so different than what it was when I was starting out. Now, I feel like I have a duty to myself and to my children more than the public and I want to be a good role model for my kids. I’m raising four black kids in this society and our system is so discriminatory against black and brown people. I want to do as much as I can to make their lives easier…I never knew much about the system until I started to dig in, and once I learned and saw how many things were wrong, I really couldn’t stop.”

Kim on why she lobbied Donald Trump to grant freedom for Alice Marie Johnson:Alice [Marie Johnson] is a mother of five and has siblings. I thought maybe Ivanka Trump would understand. Through Ivanka and her husband, Jared, I was able to connect with the president. Everyone told me I would ruin my career if I went to the White House, but that doesn’t mean anything to me. My reputation over someone’s life? That didn’t make any sense. People talk s–t all day long: I felt confident that I could handle a news story that would cycle for a day or a week, tops. But the chance to change someone’s life? Backing out was not an option for me.”

Naomi on what first inspired her philanthropic work:Ray [Petri] was one of the first people I knew with AIDS. What struck me the most about his sickness, especially the end of it, was how poorly others treated him. Since then, I’ve been a supporter of AIDS research and finding a cure. It’s something I’m still fight for today. It’s been nearly two and a half decades. I do believe that there is a cure.”
