Delphine also released a statement on the matter, writing, “I regret the lack of dialogue and support the company showed Munroe around the time of the termination. We should have also done more to create a conversation for change as we are now doing…We support Munroe’s fight against systemic racism and as a company we are committed to work to dismantle such systems.”
Munroe has joined the brand on their newly-formed diversity and inclusion advisory board, and also revealed the brand has donated €25,000 to Mermaids and €25,000 to UK Black Pride, two organizations that support people of all genders, sexualities and identities.
