Victoria's Secret is accused of racism yet again

A video of Victoria's Secret angels singing a racial slur has sparked a massive backlash Some Victoria's Secret Models Are Under Fire for Allegedly Singing the N-word in Cardi B's “Bodak Yellow”

No Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is complete without a controversy, and 2017′s Shanghai show was no exception.

Kloss ended up revealing a little more than she bargained for, as viewers quickly noticed that models are seen singing lyrics from Cardi B's hit song, "Bodak Yellow".

The clip was posted by a Twitter account called Pop Crave on Tuesday, with many social media users slamming the models and condemning their use of the word.

Editor Jasmyn Lawson added, "Welp @VictoriasSecret plz fire all of them for saying the n-word all carefree".

The conversation of white, as well as non-black people saying the n-word seems to never end.

Since the release of the video, a number of people on Twitter have been calling out the models, with some even going as far as suggesting they be fired. "Because to be black is to walk through the world and watch people doing things that you can not do".

The problem? In a room almost devoid of black models, you can hear them clearly singing the word "nigga" in Cardi B's line: "I don't wanna choose/And I'm quick, cut a nigga off, so don't get comfortable". This was pointed out in a (since-deleted) tweet by The Fader, which noted that if "Bodak Yellow" won best rap song, Cardi would not.

The video was originally posted by model Camilla Rowe, who condemned the use of the word after her video gained traction. The song has turned into a cultural sensation well beyond hip-hop.
