Andrè Leon Talley Claims He was Paid Far Less Than His White Counterparts in the Fashion Industry


Last year former Vogue editor Andrè Leon Talley wrote a scorched earth memoir blasting his former mentor Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Winour as an ice queen who cruelly tossed him aside when she no longer had use for him [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Talley is admitting he was paid far less than his white counterparts in the industry...
 


Talley, who is currently facing eviction from his home [click here if you missed that], has been hard pressed to find sympathy from his community after years of being a fashion industry gate keeper notorious for not helping elevate Black designers.

Don't care Andre! Just make sure you pack your stuff and get out them white folks house before the curb gets it.
We all know black folk are under paid in Hollyweird, you thought you were special?

How could he have helped Black designers, He was barely hanging on while being treated like a pet negro. He was groveling. He had no real power

I've been at my job for just 6 months and I'm already seeing the racist writing on the wall and I'm interviewing elsewhere. Bruh stuck this out for 30 years, being okay with being the underling. That's on him.

Shut up Andre. Why now??? After all them years side by side with Anna Wintour reaping the benefits of that life.

Pet negros are not going to be paid, as their white mediocre celebrated counter part.

I believe him. But you still made enough money not to be broke. Your house should be paid for and a nice saving for retirement. I dont even see the blacks that you know coming to your aid.

He was a little to high on his horse when he thought them white folks were his allies but now it's time to eat humble pie. I don't have too much sympathy for anyone who acts like their better than the next one. And if he still wants outsiders to feel sorry for him he's a bigger fool than I thought. He just needs to pick himself up, quit whining like a baby and move on to better things. Never let them see you sweat gurl.

Prada and all those gurls stop talking to him when he left Vogue. He really thought they liked him. All he has to show for his career is a closet full of size 6x-Caftans and Mumu's, the length and width of a king size mattress. Bloop

Leon is finding out that white folks don't love you when you're down and out.

Andre stop crying and get on YouTube and get that AdSense money like Naomi. Start a fashion podcast. Comment on red carpet looks. Just stop crying

Anyone ever hear about Anna Wintour having a kid with Bob Marley?

I wonder if she ever made Andre get down on his knees? Grimacing he just might have. Is that why he is so sad?
