Cosmetic company posts photo of black model...and vile racist comments follow

A close up of Aamito Lagum, 23, a Ugandan model and winner of Africa's Next Top Model was taken backstage at the New York Fashion Week. In the shot, she is seen modelling a lipstick, and the pic was posted to the Instagram page of international brand, MAC Cosmetics. The racist comments that follow is just vile. Aamito responded in graceful fashion and she had supporters too.

One said: 'Holy n***** lips, Batman! What colour is this called?...Grape Drank?'
In a long rant one user wrote: 'Black women will never be as beautiful as white women. The only argument blacks have is they have more melanin like that matters.

'Yes white women can get injections and when they do, they are basically flawless.
You don't have any thing over them anymore and thats why you get so p***** off. Keep lying to yourselves thinking your dark asses look better.

'Dont even come at me with the "all white features were first started by blacks". Even if that was true, WHERE THEY AT THO? Keep projecting your jealousy on white women though, Id rather be a cracker with injections than look like the majority of you oily yet ashy at the same time people.
'Acting like you don't bleach your skins, get nosejobs, get contacts, and dye your hair blonde.' [sic]
One likened the 23-year-old model's pout to 'fish lips', while another wrote 'Holy s*** I thought this was Jay Z.'

After winning Africa's Next Top Model, Lagum has walked in the catwalk shows of Lacoste, Marc by Marc Jacobs, J. Mendel, Rag & Bone, Giles, Jonathan Saunders, Paul Smith, Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Dries van Noten, H&M, Giambattista Valli, and Herm├Ęs.
She opened Balenciaga in Paris, and was the first black model to open the show under Alexander Wang.
Lagum has also appeared in magazines such as i-D, Interview, Love, W, British Vogue and Vanity Fair.
