CHANNEL 4 NEWS: NAOMI CAMPBELL TALKS RACISM IN FASHION

September 16, 2013 7 comments

YES NAOMI! Shut this poor excuse for a journalist down.

What does the former President of Liberia Charles Taylor have to do with what Naomi is trying to promote here? I hate it when people bring up this situation. The last I checked Naomi was NOT THE ONE ON TRIAL FOR WAR CRIMES and some 13 years prior to that trial was not the one who invited Charles Taylor around to her home to have dinner with a wealth of famous guests. No, I seem to remember the host of that now infamous dinner party being the then president of South Africa Nelson Mandela.

And don’t even get me started on that ridiculous question about anger… Really? Channel 4 should fire that fool or pay for him to attend a journalism workshop.

I have always liked Naomi and refuse to let these mainstream media bitches with an agenda brain wash me in to hating her. They have been on this relentless quest to vilify this woman for over a decade (this also includes forces within the fashion industry).

The skinny, tall black girl from Streatham South London exceeded all expectations, killed it in the modelling game, became a fashion icon and to top it off a millionairess. This I believe still gets under the skins of many which explains the lame attempts to constantly undermine and humiliate Naomi.

When I think of a 14 year old Naomi (a child) travelling alone and entering the murky world of modelling I shiver at the thought of what she might have gone through and how she was forced to grow up pretty quickly.

Naomi needs to write her autobiography. I know she has a deep and inspiring story to tell.

UK NEWS: CADBURY’S APOLOGISES TO NAOMI CAMPBELL OVER ‘RACIST’ AD

Don’t mess with South London girl Naomi! She will drag you and your whole crew through the courts.

Via The Media Guardian

Confectionery giant Cadbury has apologised to Naomi Campbell after the supermodel claimed an advert comparing her to one of its chocolate bars was racist.

The advert for Cadbury’s Bliss range of Dairy Milk chocolate bars used the strapline “Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town”.

Campbell said she was “shocked” by the ad, intended as a tongue-in-cheek play on Campbell’s reputation for diva-style tantrums and behaviour.

“It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me but for all black women and black people,” she said. “I do not find any humour in this. It is insulting and hurtful.”

Campaigning group Operation Black vote called the ad an “insult” to black women, while the supermodel’s mother Valerie said she was “deeply upset by this racist advert”.

“This is the 21st century, not the 1950s,” she added. “Shame on Cadbury.”

The ad was one of 15 developed by Fallon, the agency behind Cadbury’s famous drumming gorilla TV campaign.

Cadbury, now part of the Kraft empire, pulled the ads and initially issued a statement saying it was “never our intention to cause offence” and it had positioned the campaign as a “light-hearted take on the social pretensions of Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss”. Continue Reading….

Yet another major ad campaign FAIL!

Hahaha.

THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS STILL RACIST, SAYS NAOMI CAMPBELL

December 8, 2010 18 comments

Via This Is London

Super model Naomi Campbell accused the fashion industry of racism today as she urged designers to use more black models.

The 40-year-old from Streatham said the industry had taken a step backwards, as she collected a special honour at the British Fashion Awards.
She told the Evening Standard: “We’re all aware that we need to introduce more women [of colour]. Continue Reading…..

It’s good she’s speaking out but tell us something we don’t already know Naomi.

Did everybody think (including Naomi) that the situation would suddenly change after Vogue Italia decided in 2008 to do black models a favour and dedicated an entire issue (the one off ‘Black Issue’) to them?

NAOMI CAMPBELL TESTIFIES AT WAR CRIMES TRIAL

August 5, 2010 1 comment

After months of running and ‘hiding’ Naomi Campbell has finally testified at alleged war criminal Charles Taylor’s trial…

Via BBC News

Model Naomi Campbell has testified that she was given some “dirty-looking stones” after a 1997 dinner attended by ex-Liberian President Charles Taylor.

Speaking at Mr Taylor’s war crimes trial in The Hague, she said late that night, two unidentified men appeared at her room and gave her the stones.

However, she had no proof that the stones were diamonds or came from Mr Taylor, as a fellow guest suggested. Continue Reading….

Why does Naomi’s face look so swollen?

Anyway Naomi claims to have donated the stones to Jeremy Ratcliffe of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, but they deny receiving the stones.

WAR CRIMES TRIAL TO SUBPOENA NAOMI CAMPBELL

July 1, 2010 5 comments

Via BBC News

British supermodel Naomi Campbell is to be forced to give evidence in the war crimes trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor.

The UN-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone ordered a subpoena to be served and said law enforcement agencies should be asked to ensure she appeared.

Prosecutors say Ms Campbell was given a “blood diamond” by Mr Taylor in 1997 at Nelson Mandela’s house in South Africa.

Mr Taylor is accused of using such diamonds to fuel a war in Sierra Leone.

Ms Campbell had previously refused to provide testimony in the case. Continue Reading….

You receive a diamond in the middle of the night (a present) , innocently share this news with Mia Farrow the following morning back in 1997, and it all comes back to haunt you in good old 2010.

That Mia Farrow has a big mouth.  The woman wouldn’t last five minutes in prison.

Anyway, what are your thoughts on this whole situation?

WIGS AND WEAVES WILL DESTROY A HAIRLINE

Naomi Campbell was recently photographed during a fashion shoot in New York and I am annoyed with her. She should know better by now!

Look at what happens to your hairline when you insist on wearing wigs and weaves all the time….
