Naomi tells the Telegraph, “One time, I went to Australia, the editor-in-chief of a magazine told me that she got fired for putting me on the cover. I do remember going there and saying, ‘Where’s the Aboriginal model? There should be one. They’re beautiful women.'”
The catwalk veteran has long been vocal about racism in the fashion industry. In 2007, Naomi joined forces with former model and agency owner, Bethann Hardison, regarding the absence of Black models on runways and in print fashion ads, sparking a sweeping global discussion on the issue.
The Telegraph says Naomi doesn’t reveal the editor in question, but continues to speak out about continued racism in fashion.
