Fashion Crisis! Fans Outraged Over Kendall Jenner New ‘Tribal’ Mango Campaign

There has been a serious controversy after Spanish clothing brand Mango named Kendall Jenner as their face of their African themed ‘Tribal Spirit’ campaign, which some are calling racist and culturally insensitive

Considering the collection is centered on the "tribal spirit" of the African Savannah, many people became enraged that the company used Kendall rather than a black person as the face of the campaign.

Mango's Vice President Daniel Lopez explained to Women's Wear Daily of their decision,
"We thought that she was the best model to embody this trend. And obviously the upside with that is that, as a model, she's very professional, she works fantastically. As a celebrity she has huge repercussions in the market and among her followers."
