MAC Cosmetics Posted Photo of Black Woman With Full Lips and Racists Trolled Them!

Just because brands are more progressive in their inclusion of women of color doesn’t mean racists are ready to accept it.

Late Wednesday evening MAC Cosmetics posted a photo from backstage at the Ohne Titel NYFW presentation. It was a close up photo of a Black model’s full lips in a deep purple shade.

Not long after the photo was posted did the racist comments come pouring in, in different  languages no less. MAC1

MAC has been quickly trying to delete the racist comments, but the clap back from the Black community has already ensued.

The comment section has turned into a battlefield where the Black commenters are battling racist commenters and the slurs are flying left and right.

MAC hasn’t made a comment yet, but the picture is still up and the racist posts are continuously deleted.  Black beauty keeps fighting the battle for normal inclusion.
