Many who have no ties to blackness have felt the need to chant it from their favorite hip-hop songs- even Victoria Secret models.
A group of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show models have been slammed after a video emerged appearing to show several of the young women saying the N-word while singing along to rapper Cardi B's hit song 'Bodak Yellow'.
One of the lines in the popular song, which the women can be heard singing, is "I don't wanna choose and I'm quick to cut a n***** off". "If you're not black, don't say the N word", one Twitter user wrote.
"All white ones cancelled for saying the n word", added another.More news: Meghan Markle has met Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace
Requests for comment made to Victoria's Secret, Cardi B and Kloss were not returned by publication time. "Because to be black is to walk through the world and watch people doing things that you can not do". 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.
"This will give you just a little peek into the world of what it means to be black", he said.
Fans were quick to point out in that St. Louis native and model Devon Windsor refrained from joining her VS sisters in saying the n-word. Other big winners included Stormzy (Best Male Act, Best Grime Act, and Best Album for Gang Signs & Prayer), Giggs (Best Hip Hop Act), and Craig David (Best R&B/Soul Act).
"Some people love me and a lot don't", she admitted, "So it's like.it's got to be good".
