White Victoria Secret Angels Face Backlash For Singing The N-Word

Victoria's Secret

Several Victoria's Secret models are drawing heat for a video that surfaced online. Among the welcome surprises this time around was Cardi B, who was nominated for both best rap performance and best rap song for her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit, "Bodak Yellow".

The original lyrics are: " "I don't wanna choose / And I'm quick cut a n*gga off / So don't get comfortable".

"If you're not black, don't say the N word".

A video of Victoria's Secret angels singing a racial slur has sparked a massive backlash

Others however questioned whether condemning the models borders on hypocrisy, or if all of the models actually uttered the slur aloud.

As if this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and its models hadn't been embroiled in enough scandal already, the offending clip has prompted a furore of vexed responses on Twitter.

Editor Jasmyn Lawson added, "Welp @VictoriasSecret plz fire all of them for saying the n-word all carefree".

Hurricane season comes to an end. Rock Hill untouched
One storm even veered as far east as Ireland - underscoring how weird this hurricane season was. That month alone had two Category 5 hurricanes - Irma and Maria - as well as Category 4 Jose.

Victoria's Secret has not commented about the video. This was pointed out in a (since-deleted) tweet by The Fader, which noted that if "Bodak Yellow" won best rap song, Cardi would not.

Since the release of the video, a number of people on Twitter have been calling out the models, with some even going as far as suggesting they be fired.

"This will give you just a little peek into the world of what it means to be black", he said.

Microsoft And SAP Expand Partnership With Combined Cloud Services
Moreover, SAB Ariba is in the process of leveraging Azure and exploring usage within its procurement applications. Microsoft will move the SAP applications it runs in its own data centers to SAP's cloud-based S/4 HANA products.

"So many people try to discredit me", she said in her response. "There's a lot to be learned from refraining".
