LONDON — Hijab Model Amena Khan has pulled out of a campaign with L’Oréal Paris after the beauty giant discovered anti-Semitic comments she made on Twitter in 2014. The comments, voiced during the Israel-Gaza conflict, have since been deleted from her profile.
“We have recently been made aware of a series of tweets posted in 2014 by Amena Kahn, who was featured in a U.K. advertising campaign,” said a L’Oréal spokeswoman. “We appreciate that Amena has since apologized for the content of these tweets and the offense they have caused. L’Oréal Paris is committed to tolerance and respect towards all people. We agree with her decision to step down from the campaign.”
