Supermodel Naomi Campell is a respected name in the fashion industry, but that wasn't enough for one French hotel who reportedly turned the model away because of her skin color.
"I was recently in a city in the south of France, at the time of the Cannes Film Festival, where I was invited to participate in an event in a hotel whose name I will not mention," she said. We really wish she'd mention the name!
"The guy at the entrance pretended that the place was complete. He did not want to let my friend and I in because of the color of my skin … But he let other people pass," she told Paris Match adding, "I have always wanted people to be treated fairly. [I] do not believe that it goes without saying. The challenge is permanent. It is [because of] these kinds of shocking moments that I will continue to express myself and make myself heard."
Racism is alive and well across the globe!
