i saw a recent covergirl tv commercial and saw ^this hyena in it.
i think i also saw the same in a l’oreal ad as well.
i was surprised they started putting males in their make up ads now.
well james charles,
the new covergirl “cover boy”,
is under fire for some recent tweets he made.
he thought by going to africa on a school trip,
he would get the ebola virus.
this is the story via ebony magazine…
Last year James Charles made history by transcending the mainstream boundaries to take on the role of CoverGirl’s first male spokesperson. This internet star quickly became the talk of the beauty world sparking an abundance of social media praise. However, yesterday, while preparing for a school trip abroad the “CoverBoy” tweeted:
The backlash was instantaneous. Charles first defended his tweet by dismissing it as a joke but after coming under heavy twitter fire went on to issue an apology that in summary refers to his tasteless tweet as a thoughtless mistake.
Let’s not gloss over the fact that he calls Africa a country. As we later learned, he a was in fact headed to South Africa, the country.
At age 17, Charles’ actions could easily be dismissed as youthful ignorance. But should it? Many are crying out for CoverGirl to be held responsible for this blunder and there are talks of boycotting the brand until Charles has been removed as brand ambassador.
CoverGirl issued a statement to New York Magazine’s style news site, The Cut, stating “James Charles’ tweet does not represent COVERGIRL’s perspective. We agree his statements were inappropriate but appreciate that he has issued an apology. We are an inclusive brand and respect all people and cultures.”
i don’t know if that’s “his thing”,
but he should stop that.
well covergirl tweeted their thoughts on the issue:
even tho he is 17,
he is still rather dense.
africa is a “country”?
is he learning in school or too busy applying make up?
if he was black,
and said he didn’t want to go to china in fear of catching the bird flu,
his ass would have been gone.
am i lying?
funny just how that works.
