Claudia Schiffer has been accused of racial insensitivity after appearing on a magazine cover made up as a black woman.
The 39-year-old supermodel wore dark foundation and an afro wig in the shots taken by celebrated fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld.
His images, taken two years ago for a Dom Perignon advertising campaign, were among six shots of Miss Schiffer used by German fashion bible Stern Fotografie to celebrate its 60th anniversary.
Four months after his satirical approach to news coverage aired, D.L. Hughley’s CNN show, “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News” [click to read] is going off the air. Initial reports cited an unnamed inside source close to CNN who said the show was being canceled due to “budgetary constraints.”
After its initial run, the show was panned by Advertising Age and other critics, some of which compared the successful comedian to Flava Flav [click to read]. And while both the current economic climate and the initial reception to the show didn’t help, CNN states neither played a part in canceling the show.
“D.L. approached CNN about being permanently based in Los Angeles, where his family lives,” CNN representatives stated via press release. “To accommodate this, we agreed upon a new role where he will be a contributor for the network based in Los Angeles. We are eager to continue our relationship with D.L. who is a tremendous talent and a valued colleague.”
