A young black model has been released from her modeling contract on the false basis that she associates with “racists,” i.e., conservatives like Candace Owens and President Donald Trump.
“The team has been talking about your political racist connections and we have decided to release you from your contract,” the modeling firm Ursula Wiedmann wrote in an email last week to model Zoe Bethel, according to a screenshot shared on Twitter by Owens.
“We are an agency based on love and acceptance and inclusiveness and your current public persona is not relative to our brand,” the firm added, completely oblivious to its own intolerance.

This is ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC.

According to Owens, who serves as the director of communications for the often-maligned conservative advocacy group Turning Point USA, Bethel received the email after she attended the Young Black Leadership Summit late last month at the White House .
During the summit hundreds of proud black conservatives from across the nation gathered to meet the president, tout their patriotism and celebrate the unveiling of BLEXIT, a new movement to mark the ongoing widespread exodus of minorities — particularly blacks — from the Democrat Party.
And for attending this event with her fellow black conservatives, Bethel has essentially been branded a racist by Ursula Wiedmann. While tragic, what happened to her isn’t surprising.
The mainstream left has a sick history of smearing anybody and everybody who dares to step off what some have dubbed the “Democrat plantation.” Owens has herself been tarnished as a “coon” and so-called “nutty alt-right commentator,” and all because of her unrepentant conservative views.
Granted, the left has a tendency of smearing all conservatives.
“I mean, from the time we’re in grade school, we’re told, ‘Democrats good, Republicans bad.’ And we repeat that ad nauseam without ever stopping and just researching,” she noted in a YouTube video posted last year about left-wing indoctrination and escaping the “Democrat plantation.”
Bethel is just the latest victim of the left’s bigotry, though she likely won’t be the last.
In a post published to Facebook late Saturday, she thanked her supporters and informed them that she would “update you shortly with more information on my next steps moving forward.”
Commenters on both Facebook and Twitter offered a variety of potential solutions. Some said she should file a lawsuit against the agency, while others urged her to contact someone at Fox News so the story goes viral. Some even offered to hire her.

@uwmagency what happened to inclusiveness? Does it only work when it fits your ideas regarding politics? Based on your email you didn’t seek any information to understand her perspective just your own. What’s inclusive about that? Open your mind and heart #ZoeBethel

You cant make this stuff up. This Ursula lady…a white woman, had ONE black model out of 10, fires her because of her “racist” political affiliations. Because she went to this “racist” White House with several hundred black leaders. #ZoeBethel

Please tell #ZoeBethel to sue them for everything they got. To expose them and embarrass them for discrimination.
THAT EMAIL IS THE PERFECT PROOF.
I bet she’ll have all the support from #Patriots ?
