DON’T YOU VOGUE WHO I AM? Vogue Editor Has Security Guard FIRED In ‘Race Row’

BRITISH Vogue boss Edward Enninful had a security guard FIRED after he was asked to use an alternative entrance to the prestigious magazines HQ in London.

Edward Enninful claimed he was ‘racially profiled’ after being told to “use the loading bay” by a security guard as he entered work.

Mr Enninful, who has been the fashion magazine’s editor-in-chief since 2017, said the incident took place as he walked into his offices on Wednesday.

He said in a Twitter post: “Today I was racially profiled by a security guard whilst entering my work place. As I entered, I was instructed to use the loading bay.

“Just because our timelines and weekends are returning to normal, we cannot let the world return to how it was. Change needs to happen now.”

Mr Enninful, who was awarded an OBE in 2016 for his services to diversity in the fashion industry, said Conde Nast, which owns British Vogue, “moved quickly” to dismiss the security guard following the incident.

In an Instagram post to his one million followers, he said: “…It just goes to show that sometimes it doesn’t matter what you’ve achieved in the course of your life: the first thing that some people will judge you on is the colour of your skin.”
