Should Fenty Beauty hire trans model Munroe Bergdorf?

Inclusivity in practice

On August 28, model, activist and DJ Munroe Bergdorf made history as the first trans model to front a L'Oreal campaign. Days later, Bergdorf was fired after one of her Facebook posts speaking out against white supremacy was taken out of context. Her nuanced stance on the events of Charlottesville and what lead up to it was something L'Oreal claimed didn't align with its brand values.

Since Bergdorf's dismissal, social media users have been flooding their timelines with calls for Fenty Beauty to act on its inclusive brand messaging by hiring the model for its next campaign. Learn more about the controversy here, and sound off in the poll below.
