HAVEN’T we all learnt by now that white people should never, ever say the N-word? Well not everyone knows that apparently, including this clueless fashion designer.-Melbournetv
RUSSIAN fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko is under fire for using the N-word in a note to lifestyle blogger Miroslava Duma — neither are black.
On Monday, Duma, 32, posted a snap of Sergeenko’s tone-deaf note on her Instagram story, which read “To my n***as in Paris,” a play on the popular Kanye West song.
The note has sparked outrage on social media, reports the Cut.
Sergeenko, 36, wrote an equally clueless apology on her Instagram page.
“Kanye West is one of my favourite musicians,” she said. “And yes, we call each other the N word sometimes when we want to believe that we are just as cool as these guys who sing it.”
