A social media influencer has sparked a heated debate after expressing her concerns about the struggles Black content creators face while working with brands. Ebonee Davis highlighted the issue in a video she posted on TikTok on Thursday.
The influencer said she lost out on a five-figure deal with an unnamed brand after going to Instagram to post a photo of herself modeling a popular fashion brand. The photo, first posted on Instagram on July 10, shows that Davis tagged the Theophilio clothing brand while posing in an outfit that partially revealed her bare behind. Although Theophilio was tagged in the picture, Davis did not disclose whether she was referring to the clothing brand.
“My n***a took these,” she wrote in the caption of the photo.
Theophilio’s Instagram account then commented on the photo, replying with three heart emojis to praise the model.
