Victoria Secret And ASOS Get Dragged For The Way They Styled This Black Model’s Relaxed Hair

Black Twitter is the mvp online. From poignant hashtags like #BlackLivesMatter to hilarious ones that have us rolling like #blacksalonproblems. But you don’t want black twitter to be mad at you. Really you don’t. Just ask Shea moisture, Kendell Jenner, Vicki Johe, Remy Ma, Pepsi… the list goes on.

Recently black twitter came for Victoria Secret for how they styled the model Zuri Tibby’s relaxed hair. The tweet that started it all was by user @CrowedByChina, the tweet has since been deleted but not before receiving over 5000 retweets:

Black lives matter! Say her name! We gotta help sis out!!! VICTORIA GOT SIS F****D UP! pic.twitter.com/V0JSNOnPgw

The tweet was probably deleted for using the term “black lives matter” in jest when commonly it’s used for matters of police brutality which is no laughing matter. Yet as always with black twitter, people ran with the theme calling out other brands. ASOS was next:


Here are some of the sentiments echoed in the post:

Still, to be fair some of the hairstyles of the model on Victoria Secret’s site are actually pretty cute.

What do you think, are they wrong for calling out Victoria Secret for the hairstyles?

But she allowed them! It can’t always be about money. Where’s her self respect? How many white V.S models have you seen looking like a hot bowl of mess? NONE! She just allowed them to use her & has become the brunt of their joke. It would be in their best Interest for damage control to issue a public apology. Oh that’s right we so ignorant will keep giving the store that thinks this low of us our money. Smh!

Wow boycott Victoria secret

Burdette Elder Lawrence

She should be dragged for letting them do this to her

Elaine Perkins

Stop supporting them then. We buy most of it anyway! They want our dollars but not our respect. No integrity at sell!!! I know I won’t be buying any more of it.

Vanessa Jackson

They always do that to us. If not having the model cut her hair when she really doesn’t want to. As a daughter of a hairstylist, I think it’s unacceptable.

Tee Collins

Shid…she’s the fool! I would have told them…I’LL PUT MY OWN HAIR IN A BUN!

Daria Sassylicius Darii Ashton

Y’all need to get a seat if they put a wig on her head would be why they can’t leave her natural hair, if they didn’t put a. BLack woman it’s will be why they didn’t put a black model .Yo whatever this people will do black folks will have issues with it and pull the race card it’s time to just live without mixing everything all the time race race. Racism is other way around aswell

Antonia Bell

OMG! Nah that is disrespect, but she’s just as fool. Why let them style her hair like that and tek pictures?! Kmt

Sharon Caurthens

The model is so pretty, she looks gorgeous even with messy hair.
