Here We Go Again: French ELLE Beauty Editor Wears Blackface

Fashion has a painful and embarrassing past of putting White models in Blackface, and it appears some of them still haven't learned their damn lesson.

The latest humiliation comes to us via ELLE France beauty editor Jeanne Deroo, who posted a picture to Instagram in which she's wearing Blackface and an afro and looks like a damn fool. Unless the black stuff on your face is some kind of fabulous mud that magically makes you less racist through a secret combination of vitamins and minerals that your face masseur forgot to take off, this is never ever acceptable.
