‘The Face’ model says she’s not a ‘black model’ because she’s light-skinned

the face show

Wendy: Is it hard to be a black girl model?

Devyn: I don’t really consider myself as a black girl model. I know what my ethnicity is, but I’m fair-skinned and I feel like I have an international look.

Wendy: So you don’t feel black?

Devyn: No, that’s not what I said, whatsoever.

Naomi Campbell, a notorious hothead who was sitting off to the side with other guests, is overheard spewing venom at Devyn’s answer: “What the f— does she mean? That’s a disgrace! She’s a black girl.”

From her comments, it would appear that Devyn was trying to distance herself from her ethnicity and feels that she is better equipped to go international with her game because she is a light-skinned woman or, as is often termed in the black community as a “red-bone.”

How do you feel about Devyn’s comments, as well as Campbell’s profane retort?
