Kendall Jenner has been booked for yet another major ad campaign and this time, she’s been asked to front Mango’s 2016 spring collection and a very vocal portion of the Internet is not happy about it.
Jenner took to Instagram to share a video of the David Sims-photographed shoot:
Many are none too pleased about the Spanish fashion house’s choice in hiring a white model to promote an African savanna-inspired collection called “Tribal Spirit.” and have taken to Twitter to vent their opinions:
So @Mango cast kendall jenner in an African themed collection called “Tribal Spirit”. Good to see fashion houses are still racist in 2016.

Kendall Jenner is working with clothing brand Mango and their line is called “tribal spirit” I can’t wait to see the cultural appropriation.
