Model Duckie Thot openly criticized the fashion industry in the wake of the weekend’s protests.

“The fashion industry needs to do more! Yall literally use me to promote your products. Your silence ain’t it. I want to see the support,” the South Sudanese model tweeted.

She also took a dig at top Louis Vuitton and Off-White designer and streetwear icon Virgil Abloh when he revealed he’d donated $50 to the Black Lives Matter movement. Other critics of Abloh’s donation pointed out that the designer’s line includes socks that sell for more than double the amount of the donation, and belts that go for $450.

Thot has previously spoken out about stylists not knowing how to style black hair on fashion shoots.

Thot was the first in my family to be born in Australia. Her parents came from South Sudan as refugees; the South Sudanese Civil War was really hard, and her dad wanted the best for her.
