A British model has been removed from a pageant website after she slammed China over the COVID-19 outbreak when she said “Fk the chinks”, the country is “over populated” as well as they “all look alike”.
UK model Chantelle Foreman from Eastbourne in East Sussex referred to COVID-19 as the “Chinese disease” in one Instagram Stories post.
US president Donald Trump, 73, has recently been criticised for repeatedly referring to COVID-19 as the “Chinese virus”.
She followed up the post with: “Fk the chinks. STRAIGHT UP. Over populated all look alike & ruined, infecting the best of us.”
Following an online backlash to her posts, Foreman responded with the message: “Lol, mee getting called racist coz I said Chinese disease… HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD.”
When an Instagram user asked her “why have you put ‘Chinese disease?’ the British model replied: “It’s true. Or I’m lying?”
According to reports, Foreman has since deleted her Instagram account, where she referred to herself as a “fashion/swimwear” model.
Reports said that her biography included “former Miss Swimsuit UK finalist” and “grand finalist” for Miss Midlands UK.
The organisers of the Miss Midlands UK pageant announced that Foreman has since been removed from their website.
A statement said: “She’s been asked to take her name away from her profile and I’ve removed her from all MMUK chats.”
