Another Victoria’s Secret show, another controversy.

Some Victoria’s Secret models have been slammed for allegedly uttering the n-word while singing along to Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow.”

In a video posted by a Twitter account called Pop Crave on Tuesday, the clip shows models singing backstage at the fashion show, which took place in Shanghai this year.

Most of the models in the video appear to be white, and sing along to the lyric in Cardi B’s song, which goes: “I don’t wanna choose / And I’m quick, cut a ni**a hustle / Don’t get comfortable.”

Naturally, people were less that forgiving to what they had just seen in the video, including perhaps Cardi B, who retweeted the video.

If you’re not black, don’t say the N word. Point. Blank. Period.

So who said it ?

But as one Twitter user noticed, model Devon Windsor apparently kept her mouth shut when the racial slur appeared in the song.

The safe one is @DevWindsor:

Of course, this incident follows other Victoria’s Secret controversies around racism and cultural appropriation. In 2010, a so-called “tribal skit” at the show was criticised, as well as appropriation of Asian and Native American cultures at the 2012 and 2016 show.
