Rihanna Replies Fan Who Asked Her To Include Trans Girls To Her Campaign
Controversial American singer, Rihanna, was asked by a fan to include a transgender girl to her Fenty Beauty campaign and she replied;
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with many gifted trans women over the years,” she replied, “but I don’t go around doing trans castings!”
“I respect all women. Whether they’re trans or not is none of my business.”
The star went on to criticise firms who hire models from minority groups as a “token” gesture.
“I don’t think it’s fair that a trans woman, or man, be used as a convenient marketing tool,” she said.
“Too often I see companies doing this to trans and black women alike.
“There’s always just that one spot in the campaign for the token ‘we look mad diverse’ girl/guy! It’s sad!”
