Pride goes before a fall.
Ebonee Davis is a fashion model with 342,000 followers on Instagram. She has been featured in American Vogue, Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, CRWN, L’official, Glamour magazine and alongside songstress Solange Knowles in Office Magazine.
She has also worked with such brands as L’Oreal, Fenty X Savage, Ivy Park, and Tommy Hilfiger.
On Thursday, Ebonee, 28, posted a video informing her followers that she lost a 5-figure brand deal because of a post in which she poses provocatively in a fishnet bodysuit. She captioned the post: “My nigga took these.”
She said the caption was a “playful articulation of the love I have for my man.”
This is “the harsh reality that Black content creators face,” she complained.
“After posting that picture and posting that content, I received a phone call from my agent saying that the company thought it was inappropriate.”
Ebonee’s arrogance and immaturity are on full display as she explains that Black people consider the n-word to be a “term of endearment” (no we don’t).
She accused the white men at the brand of projecting “their sexual desires onto me.” She continued: “These systems of oppression have threatened the livelihood of Black women for centuries.”
“If you can’t handle me at my back that ass up, you can’t handle me at my I have a dream,” she said.
Losing a lucrative brand deal should’ve been a teaching moment for Ebonee that her post was inappropriate, tacky and unprofessional.
Ebonee is typical of today’s influencers who believe they can do and say whatever they want without consequences.
