Glamour Brasil is facing enormous social media backlash after its “slanty eyes” Instagram post. Asian Brazilians were the first to offer angry comments. Then, Asian Americans backed their cause. Even Buzzfeed Japan piped in.
Brazilians jumped to Glamour’s defense, claiming the gesture was “an innocent joke” and would “never be considered offensive in Brazil.”
Glamour Brasil has since deleted the picture and posted a formal apology.
