Naomi Campbell opened up about a “revolting” incident in which she was banned from entering a hotel because she is black. In a recent interview, the model recalled the horrific ordeal of being racially profiled during a visit to the south of France this past spring, reported E! News.
In interview the supermodel was asked about paving the way for young generations of models in terms of diversity. While the fashion industry has made progress in recent years as compared to the ‘90s, Campbell noted that the challenge is permanent. “I was recently in a city in the South of France, where I was invited to participate in an event in a hotel whose name I will not mention. They did not want to let my friend and I in because of the colour of my skin,” she said.
“It is for these kinds of revolting moments that I will continue to speak up and make myself heard,” she added.
