Farm 13: Dayane accused of racism for saying white beauty is ‘elegant’


Dayane Mello was involved in a new controversy on Monday afternoon (20) in A Fazenda 13. The model said that she cannot sunbathe because brands do not like brunettes and prefer a white beauty because it is “more elegant”. The speech reverberated on social networks and generated revolt even among famous people.

“I don’t want to sunbathe anymore, I can’t. You know I can’t get too dark for my work, right?”, she said to Tiago Piquilo, who was startled by the information. “It has to be white because the campaigns don’t want a lot of brunette,” she explained.

“They want beauty in a more elegant body than much… Brunette, you know?” Dayane continued, whispering the word “brunette.” “Brands sometimes don’t want a lingerie brand, none of that stuff,” she added.

Columnist Aline Ramos, from UOL, explained that Dayane’s speech is racist not because she explains that the fashion industry prefers white models, something that is already known, but because she relates whiteness to elegance.

On social networks, the speech had negative repercussions and generated requests for the elimination of former Big Brother Italy. “The way she says ‘brunette’ makes her want to vomit in her face,” reacted Samantha Schmütz. “That no brand hires this inelegant one”, wished the actress.

“I feel like throwing up. What an inelegant girl, without a clue. She just talks shit, and it’s not the first time,” Giovanna Ewbank fired, referring also to Dayane’s speech about Duda Reis having invented the assault charges against Nego do Borel to win fame.

O TV news contacted the model’s team, which did not comment until the publication of this text.
