Racist Comments Flood MAC Cosmetics Instagram Post
MAC Cosmetics posted a picture on Instagram of one of their models sporting one of their popular lipstick shades with the caption “Royal romance at @ohnetitelny #AW16. #MACBackstage #NYFW” on Wednesday, and all hell broke loose.
Minutes after being posted, the comments included racial slurs and criticism of the Black model’s lips—horrible things like the use of the N word and “them fish lips tho..”
But this activity did not go unnoticed by consumers everywhere fighting off the racist trolls, and MAC addressed this situation. MAC added “The Official M∙A∙C Cosmetics Instagram. All Ages, All Races, All Sexes.” to their Instagram biography.
Goes to show you haters never win.
