Karlie Kloss Racist Photoshoot Draws Twitter Outrage - And An Apology

16 February 2017

Model Karlie Kloss faced some serious online scrutiny after a recent photoshoot for Vogue Magazine's March issue.

Karlie has since apologized for the "culturally insensitive" spread, but Vogue has yet to address it.

In the photos - shot by photographer Mikael Jansson in Japan - Kloss wears white powder on her face and dons traditional geisha clothing, as well as poses with a sumo wrestler.

Kloss took to Twitter today (15 February) to apologise for participating in the shoot, which she admitted did "appropriate a culture that is not my own".

So it looks like Vogue has completely forgotten about diversity in their brand new "diversity" issue, and supermodel Karlie Kloss is feeling the heat for it- actually, more like the WRATH of it.

Hetfield and Gaga shared ended up sharing her mic, adding a cool theatrical element to the performance, albeit an unplanned one. Metallica was up for one Grammy this year for Best Rock Song for " Hardwired ", but lost to David Bowie's "Blackstar".

"My goal is, and always will be, to empower and inspire women".

One fan tweets, "Between confusing Destiny's Child and TLC, and dressing like a Geisha it appears that Karlie Kloss has been canceled". She then pledged to "ensure my future shoots and projects reflect that mission".

March's edition of the magazine claims to celebrate the diversity of "the modern American woman" and features Chinese model Liu Wen on the cover. In 2012, Kloss walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show wearing a Native American-inspired headdress complete with high-heel moccasins and fringed leather pra and panties. "I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast". It was back in September 2016 that Kloss and a few other models strutted their stuff donning dreadlock wigs.

And with the famed fashion magazine Vogue starting to publish an annual diversity issue, it felt like we were on the right path.
