FIRST MODEL WITH HIJAB IN ONE OF L’OREAL’S HAIR CARE ADS PULLS OUT OVER CONTROVERSIAL TWEETS
UK beauty blogger Amena Khan is pulling out of a L’Oreal campaign for hair care products, BBC writes. In a post on Instagram she said she’s stepping down from the campaign “because of the current conversations surrounding it”, which follows the discovery of tweets she wrote in 2014, which some have branded as “anti-Israel”.
It comes just days after she told BBC she was delighted to be the first woman in a hijab to be part of a mainstream advert for hair care.
“I Deeply regret the content of the tweets I made in 2014, and sincerely apologise for the upset and hurt that they have caused. Championing diversity is one of my passions, I don’t discriminate against anyone. I have chosen to delete them as they do not represent the message of harmony that I stand for,” Khan wrote, adding she is stepping down from the campaign “with regret” because “the current conversations surrounding it detract from the positive and inclusive sentiment that it set out to deliver”.

RUPERT MURDOCH WANTS FACEBOOK TO PAY PUBLISHERS A FEE FOR ‘TRUSTED’ NEWS CONTENT
News Corp. executive chairman and 21st Century Fox executive co-chairman Rupert Murdoch is taking on Silicon Valley.
The media mogul released a statement noting that if Facebook is going to revamp its news feed to ensure it’s publishing the most legitimate, “trusted” news content on its platform, then it should pay publishers a carriage fee for that content.
Murdoch wants a system in which Facebook essentially operates like a cable TV provider does.
“The publishers are obviously enhancing the value and integrity of Facebook through their news and content but are not being adequately rewarded for those services,” Murdoch said in a statement, issued by News Corp. “Carriage payments would have a minor impact on Facebook’s profits but a major impact on the prospects for publishers and journalists.”
