This Model Was Dropped From A London Fashion Show Because She's Black
The lack of diversity in the fashion industry is pretty sad, and more and more people are realizing that it's not okay that it's not inclusive. Thankfully, one model is speaking out about it. Check out below

Leomie Anderson is a model who is very candid about her experience as a black model, and her most recent experience is quite upsetting.

Look how stunning this Victoria's Secret model is! 

A beautiful woman who is raising awareness about a very deep issue.

She wrote these two tweets about her modeling experience at London Fashion Week. 

That is so messed up.

It's like the designer is trying to prove that they are inclusive of having someone with a different ethnic background, but that model is there to fill a quota.

Not okay.

After Leomie Anderson shared her experience on Twitter, she went on BBC radio to talk more about this situation.    

"I feel like there have been a lot of situations where black models have been made to feel like second-class citizens during fashion week or during their jobs."

It's so sad that she, along with probably many other models, had to go through this. 

But the more it's being talked about, the more people are learning that this is a problem. Hopefully, the fashion industry diversifies because it definitely needs to.
