    I’m surprised nobody has posted this yet, but last week Beyoncé’s Ivy Park was accused of “black fishing” which looks a lot more like subtle blackface to me. They used White Russians in an ad and used them to mimic black women by giving them curls, braids, and skin treatments.


    My issue is that these jobs were stolen from the millions of actual black women who would love to start their career modeling for Ivy Park and Beyoncé.:francis:




    Also, I don’t think Beyoncé has very much control over her company, cause I doubt any real black person would greenlight this photo shoot. I think one of the white management was running a finesse and trying to get one of their own women a gig through this black brand. :beli:





    Here is the article......








    Beyoncé's Ivy Park Faces Backlash Over "Blackfishing" Allegations



    People criticized the Russian models used in the campaign.

    A promotional photo posted to Ivy Park's Instagram page has caused the public to debate the subject of "blackfishing." Days ago, Ivy Park shared an image that featured two models posing in the adidas gear. There wasn't anything exceptional about the picture itself, but on Wednesday (December 8), people began to discuss how the models, who at first glance looked like women of color or Black women to many, are actually Russian and much lighter than the image suggests.



    Soon, people began accusing the models of Blackface, or Blackfishing—a take on the pop-culture term "catfish." Beyoncé and her team were also targeted, especially because the singer is avidly pro-Black and pro-African in her music and visuals. Because Beyoncé is also known as someone who is intimately involved in all aspects of her projects, her fans argued that she wouldn't approve of this look. However, while the models are Russian, their ethnic backgrounds are unknown.:mjpls:


    No statement has been made by Bey or Ivy Park just yet, but the internet is making their voices heard. Check out a few responses below as well as more images from the models included in the campaign.





    Here are the pics. What do y’all think?:jbhmm:





    Here is more.....:unimpressed:










    And this is what the models look like normally as beckys :patrice:

    :yeshrug: these white women look attractive pretending to be black

    As a man all I care about is how fine a woman is. Could care less what her actual race is.

    stupid outrage. this is on adidas not beyonce.

    aim your ire at the right person.... all this online mobbing is trash, like you think Beyonce is sitting around approving every campaign Adidas runs. She can talk to them about how they rep her but this ain't on her.
