Hey everyone reblogging Dita Von Teese:
She’s still a racist asshole that wears yellowface while portraying ancient asian stereotypes.
Even others in the burlesque community find her recent behaviour uncool, Candy Apples being one of them:
“My sister and mom were stunned as well. The first thing that came to my mind was the fact that I was surrounded by a very large group of Chinese exchange students, who all had their mouths open and were just as stunned as I was. The girl next to me leaned over and said, “We don’t smoke opium and dress like that! Is that what you think we do?!” and they all began whispering amongst themselves.
I understand her concept behind the piece and I highly doubt she meant to offend. But she did offend. She offended not only three Romani women, but she offended an entire group of young people who just came from the country that she was stereotyping.”
Dita why D:
Seriously? That’s just…Dita…why…
