The Face” contestant Devyn put a stamp on shame in the modeling industry for Black women when she told Wendy Williams, who was a guest judge, that she doesn’t consider herself a Black model.
It was awkward just witnessing the exchange between the Black women in the room with this 21-year-old brown skinned chick.
In an attempt to relate to the girl, Wendy asked her about the level of difficulty being a Black model.
To her surprise, and Naomi’s, she said, “I don’t really consider myself as a Black girl model. I know what my ethnicity is, but I’m fair-skinned and I feel like I have an international look.”
