Edward Enninful, the editor of British Vogue, has said he was racially profiled by a security guard whilst entering his workplace, on Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
According to him, he was instructed to use the loading bay as he entered the offices in central London.
Mr Enninful revealed this in a post on social media.
“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,” he said.
He added that: “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.”
Edward Enninful stated that Condé Nast, which owns British Vogue, “moved quickly” to dismiss the security guard following the incident.
“…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,” he stated in the caption of his Instagram post.
Edward Enninful was appointed an OBE in 2016 for services to diversity in the fashion industry
