When Naomi Campbell isn’t busy wiping down entire airplanes with a kleenex wipe, she’s busy shaming racist French hotels.
Even at her celebrity status, Naomi Campbell still has an issue getting through the door at white establishments–aka– racist hotels. And take one guess as to why that is. Naomi Campbell racist hotel experience is something that won’t go unnoticed.

Yesterday arriving at #ValentinoHauteCouture #FallWinter1920 show with @edward_enninful @derekblasberg 💗 Was another stunning, powerful show for @maisonvalentino 🙏🏾 @pppiccioli the moments you are able to create are absolutely beautiful, magnificent and original 💗 I am forever in awe of you and your vision!!!
Figure it out yet?
If you guessed that it’s because Naomi’ s one of those beautiful brown-skin girls that Beyonce sings about, then you’re absolutely right. Naomi claims that a hotel in South of France would not her let into a party, because her skin was too dark.
“They did not want to let my friend and I in because of the color of my skin. The guy at the entrance pretended that the place was full but he was letting other people in. It is for these kinds of revolting moments that I will continue to speak up and make myself heard. The word ‘diversity, is everywhere today but it did not exist when I started. I’ve always wanted people to be treated equally.”
Naomi say’s the hotel security lied about the party being over capacity, however, when it came to other arriving guests, they were happily allowed in. Which may be hurtful, yet not a new experience for the famous model.
“I was told many times that I couldn’t do certain things because of the color of my skin. I let it drive me. And of course I’m human, and I found it hard at times not to take it personally. But I stand here today as a proud woman of color, and I will continue to push for diversity and equality in this industry.”And for this, we stan a fan of Ms. Campbell!
