The fall out from Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko “niggas in Paris” note hasn’t ended. After Buro 24/7 blogger Miroslava Duma apologized profusely for posting the Kanye-quoting note on her Instagram stories, a since-deleted video surfaced on Twitter.
In the video, Miroslava was shown lecturing at a conference where she spoke critically about prominent fashion blogger Bryanboy and transgender transgender model Andrej Pejić, describing them as poor role models for dressing in women’s clothing.
When asked about about Pejić being photographed in bathing suits, Miroslava said, “Honestly, I dislike that. Because somewhere, on TV or in a magazine, a little boy could see it and that boy wouldn’t understand it correctly, wouldn’t react correctly. And I think a certain kind of censorship and refined culture is needed here.”
Once again, Miroslava issued an immediate apology, explaining she’s changed since she made the comments. “I am deeply ashamed by the comments I made in 2012,” she wrote. “Frankly, I’m as shocked as anyone to be viewing that footage today, and to see for my own eyes how utterly offensive and hurtful my actions were back then.”
Bryanboy posted the video on Instagram, writing, “Racism and bigotry is never cool. I guess I’m too weird.” Pejic hasn’t commented.
Marc Goehring, editor at Berline magazine 032C, weighed in on the mess pre-apology with an image of himself sporting a t-shirt reading: “Hi, my name is Miroslava Duma. I am a racist. I am a homophobe. I am a transphobe.”
