Picture of Black Woman’s Lips Prompts Racist Comments on MAC Cosmetic’s Instagram Page

Avatar • Feb 18, 2016

This is the picture that incited hundreds of hateful and racist comments. It was posted to MAC Cosmetics’ Instagram page yesterday evening, with the caption “Royal romance at @ohnetitelny #AW16. #MACBackstage #NYFW”

Within minutes it was swamped with hateful comments from fans, some of whom said they would unfollow MAC’s account.

The comments are a poignant reminder that physical features typical of black women are seen as beautiful, but not when they are on black women.


But they are. #BigLips

According to the NY Daily News, a new study shows that 36% of young women aged 18 to 26 want lip injections before any other enhancement.

Everyone wants to have a “curvy” shape — Brazilian Butt Lift, tan orange, Botox lips for a “fuller” look and pump up their scrambled eggs to cantaloupe. ?

And yet Black women are fat and ugly? ?

Thought #1: Why is it that all I get from BGLH is how much the whites and color-struck beige people of the world hate dark skin, kinky hair, big lips, wide hips, etc.??? Most of us grew up hearing insults about our features said to to our faces on a regular basis, so this stupidity from idiots online is not news. Are these articles supposed to be uplifting and unifying, or is the point to fuel anger and clicks? Thought #2: Forget these fools…can someone please give me some tips on what to do with my high porosity, 4B hair… Read more »

This comment is about my beautiful sista above with her full lips. All our lives we as black women have been made fun of because of our hair, nose, lips, breast, and butts. Now everywhere we look some heifer is imitating us. We were born with the beauty. But non-black women get theirs like this: If we’re so ugly with our features why is the whole world copying us?

I feel like we spend so much energy defending who/what we are (black women) and our features that it is really exhausting. What we need to do is make sure we always support and prop each other up such that the voices of the racists reveal themselves as just that. It is when we wait for their response or we let them be the first to comment or we let our voices be drowned by theirs that we let ourselves down. Let’s focus on what is right for us, what is good for us and what can help us move… Read more »

It is racist, hurtful, and hateful for anyone of white lineage to call black people “nigger” OR “nigga.” Don’t do it.

A lot of black people feel they are taking back the power of the word when they say “nigga“to their black brothers and sisters.

Are you a black brother or sister? No? Then keep that offending word out of your mouth or bear the consequences.

you damn right its racist when white people say ‚it, especially to describe a person’s attribute.

You fucking white people love to look for ways to excuse racism. This is not about “when black people say it” its about what was said in the comment to the picture in discussion. You want to talk about other topics, leave that to another discussion

Having lips so thin you’re nearly lipless is unwomanly and unattractive, and nulls out the beauty and femininity of the whole face. Kissably full lips is the ideal in womanhood. Her lover adores pressing lips onto soft, yielding, receptive lips. Even men around the world who’ve never seen black women admit they dream of kissing one. Struggling to kiss a hard, thin line under a hard beak-nose will never hold the same magic, excitement, or simply pleasantness of effect and connotation. “I prefer my women nearly lipless,” said no one, ever. It’s not shocking that lipless harpies under the Mac… Read more »

I couldn’t give less of a fuck about what a bunch of thin-lipped white bitches say. All I say is continue to be truthful with your real feelings about black women.

She doesn’t sound racist to me. She sounds hurt. When black men, who know the struggle, run to white women for petty and shallow reasons other than sincerely loving the person, that hurts black women, who feel the struggle. There is a difference between dating outside of races because you love the individual sincerely and dating outside of races out of spite, anger, annoyance, and out of what you “hear” about other races. There are black men that do this, and “abandon” (so to speak) the women of their own color. Black people have been put down for so long,… Read more »

No. Black women naturally have a sense of dignity, of strength, of respect, and of power. What this means, is that so much of that self respect, dignity was being pushed down and away by the black men who didn’t push their own. It takes TWO. TWO have to be on the same page. TWO have to be good to each other. Black women saw that they don’t have to stay underneath as under dogs anymore. That isn’t feminist sh**t. That is realizing their self worth. And then the black woman who realizes their self worth raises their children to… Read more »

Those people posting those negative comments are ignorant and racist. But you should ignore them. There is always going to someone against you.

I think ignoring this problem is what has allowed it to get so bad. What have people done in the past with things like this? Ignored it!

White people do not have a right to call black people the n‑word whether it ends with a ‑a or a ‑er. Because that’s a racial slur your people have created and still use to this day.

And not all black people use the n‑word so i hope you don’t think you can walk up to any black person and use that then cry about “black people use it all the time” By the… Read more »

The model is beautiful. To combat racism, we have to confront it and defeat it not ignore. The human dignity of black women should always be respected.

I’LL SAY IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN WHITE WOMEN ARE JEALOUS OF BLACK WOMEN THAT COMMENT OF THEM SAYING ‘WE ARE BEAUTIFUL’ IS PATHETIC THEY HAVE JACKED UP TEETH, THIN LIPS, FLAT BOOTIES, NO BREASTS AND NO SOUL/FLAVOUR. THEY PAY TOP DOLLAR TO TRY AND IMITATE BLACK WOMEN BUT THEY STILL CANT MANAGE TO REVERSE THE SIGNS OF AGIN! ????. PLEASE WHITE BITCHES KEEP INJECTING YOUR FROZEN FACES WITH POISON LOL! IT STILL DOESN’T ALTER THE FACT THAT YOU ALL LOOK 30 AT 18 ????.

They’ll make fun of our lips while simultaneously trying to get lips like ours. Jealous bitter heffas.
