Model Carissa Pinkston has reportedly been dropped from her agency after posting transphobic comments, then falsely claiming to be a transgender woman.
Pinkston, who was one of the models for Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show, took dramatic steps to get herself out of a mess after she put her foot in her mouth.
So why would a cisgender woman claim to be transgender when she isn’t?
This is how it all went down.
In May, Pinkston took to Facebook making two comments invalidating the identities of transgender women.
In her first post, she wrote: “Being Transgender does NOT make you a woman. It makes you simply Transgender”.
