Former executive fashion director of Hearst’s Elle magazine Kyle Anderson was tangled in a social media tornado after he Instagrammed the words “Stop firing employees because they are white, especially men.” This text was posted on his Instagram feed as a post along with an excerpt of a New York Times article that was previously written- not so long ago though- on Anna Wintour and Vogue, about their carelessness with a race that was evident in the racial slurs they had used against their models and staffers. Anderson wrote on how he was frustrated with the firing of all his white colleagues as their post in the editorial over the past three years; every white man that has ever worked with Kyle has been reported to have lost their jobs on one single day. He also added that it was childish and immature of companies letting their employees go and then saying how prideful it was to “get rid of them and how it’s the right time to do so.”
Vile Backlash On Kyle’s Social Media Along With Enraged Comments:-
Just moments after captioning his Instagram, he was met with countless attacks that flooded his comment sections by upset, hurt, and irked fans and followers. Fans that called him racist, non-human, delusional, and many other various hate comments were answered to, by Kyle giving them an equally despicable response. His message was posted on Twitter by an anonymous commentator who sarcastically called out the white men in general who were obviously oppressed had no place in this world which is certainly not created “for their success to the detriment of women and people of color”, to which Kyle quickly replied with “F**k you a**hole”.
Anderson’s History And Relationship With Elle:-
According to his bio on his LinkedIn profile, Anderson had worked for Elle from October 2017 to September 2018 and was previously with the magazine from the middle of 2006 to 2011. He has written and edited many successful works in the field of fashion, style, and modeling, satisfying his higher-ups with his talent and displeasing them with his racial outlook towards his subordinates and employees, as reported by the people who used to work under him. He was continuously accused of using inappropriate terms with his colleagues and admits to having done it unintentionally, though his ex-workmates have much more to say.
