Twitter Is Calling For Anna Wintour’s Retirement After Throwing Kamala Harris On Cover Of Vogue In Chuck Taylors, Calls The Cover Disrespectful

Twitter is back at it once again. This time users on the social media platform have their sight on Anna Wintour, and Vogue Magazine after the cover of February’s issue featuring Madam Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris was released. Although some users loved the images, many are outraged, calling out the magazines blatant disrespect after allegedly blindsiding Harris’ team with the selection.

Harris, a Howard University graduate has proudly touted her membership in the storied organization and posed for an alternate cover photo to represent that heritage. Harris is depicted in a black Donald Deal jacket, classic Converse sneakers a string of pearls while standing in front of a smattering of pink and green- the colors of her sorority.

Twitter was swift to condemn the second photo while largely praising the first: Kamala, arms folded in light blue Michael Kors business suit. The magazine was accused from everything from poor taste to outright racism. 

Both photos were taken by Tyler Mitchell: a Black photographer who also composed Beyoncé’s shots back in 2018. He shared the photo of Harris in the more formal attire on social media; Harris hasn’t shared either picture.

Vogue rebuffed criticism in a statement delivered to USA Today by Remi Berger, “The team at Vogue loved the images Tyler Mitchell shot and felt the more informal image captured Vice President-elect Harris’s authentic, approachable nature – which we feel is one of the hallmarks of the Biden/Harris administration. To respond to the seriousness of this moment in history, and the role she has to play leading our country forward we’re celebrating both images of her as covers digitally.”

In the interview with the outlet, Harris spoke to the divisions plaguing the American political landscape, “At the risk of oversimplifying it, you don’t meet hate with hate,” You don’t meet one line of division with another line of division. We believe that the vast majority of American people don’t agree with that approach, don’t accept it, and don’t like it.”

She added, “We can agree that we have more in common than what separates us, and agree that it’s not in the best interest of who we are as a nation to have any one group suffer for who they are.”

Reportedly, Harris and her team were unaware that the relaxed look was going to be a part of the shoot leaving many to question the rationale of Vogue Magazine Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour once again.
