Black model slams magazine for printing another model's photo next to her interview

A black Australian supermodel has lashed out at a magazine for publishing the photo of a totally different model alongside her interview.

Adut Akech, who is originally from South Sudan, slammed Who Magazine for the blunder, describing it as “disrespectful”.

The supermodel was interviewed by the glossy mag on the issued of race and refugees.

While she was happy with how the article had been worded for publication, she was horrified to see that they had accidentally published the photo of Flavia Lazarus instead of her photo.

In a statement, Adut said: “With the article, they published a large photo saying it was me, but it was of another black girl.

“Not only do I feel personally insulted and disrespected, but I feel like my entire race has been disrespected too.”

She added: “It goes to show that people are very ignorant and narrow-minded that they think every black girl or African people looks the same.”

According to the 19-year-old beauty, the mix-up with the photos essentially defeated the entire purpose of her interview, saying that it went against everything she stood for.

She added: “I feel as though this wouldn't have happened to a white model.”

The City of Melbourne Council’s PR has stepped up to take responsibility for the mix-up, claiming the wrong file was sent to the magazine instead of one containing images of Adult.

In an apologetic statement, Who Magazine said: “Unfortunately the agency that set up our interview with Adut Akech supplied us with the wrong photograph to accompany the piece.
