It’s not even Halloween and White folks are still making headlines for doing stupid stuff with blackface. The latest is Jeanne Deroo, the beauty editor of Elle France.
Ms. Deroo thought it would be smart to dress up in blackface over the weekend, and post an image of herself on Instagram. The image features the Deroo wearing an afro wig and black make up, doing what she thought would be her best Solange impersonation.
She has since deleted the image, but why she thought it was a good idea in the first place baffles our minds. Deroo did issue an apology, but ain’t nobody got time for that.
“I realise how much the fact of painting oneself brown is an offensive act. I didn’t realise the seriousness of my action when I went to a private party last Saturday evening, which the theme was ‘Icons,’ and where I chose to embody Solange Knowles, of whom I am a fan,” she said.
“During this private party, I posted a picture of myself on my Instagram without intention of hurting anyone. I deeply regret and would like to present all my apologies.”
“I would also like to indicate that this picture published in a private context does not involve in any way the french ELLE magazine I work for, and I am sorry for the prejudice it has caused,” Deroo continued.
Yawn. Save it, Jeanne.
Kylie Jenner (And Her Blanket) Come Out Of Hiding For Family Calvin Klein Ad
Kylie Jenner has finally surfaced folks … but her baby bump has not.. The lip kit mogul, who has been a virtual recluse since pregnancy rumors began swirling, finally came out of hiding to join her sisters for a special Calvin Klein campaign.
In the newly debuted images, the gorgeous brood seductively pose in the brand’s iconic underwear and jeans, lounging among quilted blankets … but Kylie it seems is tucked under a blanket in pretty much every photo.
Even when clothed Jenner can be seen with the red and white quilt conveniently covering her midsection.
And when the sisters are dressed in nothing but their Calvin’s … Jenner is not pictured at all.
News dropped in September that the 20-year-old was expecting a baby with her boyfriend rap star Travis Scott. No one in the family has confirmed reports, but we’re sure when Kylie finally makes the big reveal it will be in true Kardashian / Jenner fashion … on their reality show.
In the meantime fans can see Kylie and her blanket all over social media.
Kim shared Klein’s Spring 2018 “Our Family. #MYCALVINS” campaign on her Instagram page Monday with the caption: “Nothing better than working with my family! Honored to be shot alongside my sisters for the new CALVIN KLEIN UNDERWEAR & CALVIN KLEIN JEANS global campaign.”
In addition to the photo campaign, shot by photographer Willy Vanerdperre, the sisters are also featured in a video where they are laying down playing a game of Never Have I Ever. Kim admits she’s never had a tattoo, while Kendall admits she’s never been married. Peep the video below.
