Former longtime Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley, 71, is SLAMMING his former boss Anna Wintour in a new interview. Specifically, he calls Wintour a “colonialist broad” who is accustomed to “white privilege.”

In an interview with Sandra Bernhard’s show ‘Sandyland’ on SiriusXM, Andre says after Wintour apologized for “hurtful and intolerant” behavior at Vogue: “[Wintour’s] statement came out of the space of white privilege. I want to say one thing, Dame Anna Wintour is a colonial broad, she’s a colonial dame, she comes from British, she’s part of an environment of colonialism. She is entitled and I do not think she will ever let anything get in the way of her white privilege.”

Harper’s Bazaar recently hired Samira Nasr, the magazine’s first black editor in history. Andre likens Anna’s statement as a sign that she’s threatened by Nasr. Andre says: “Clearly, that statement comes because this girl [Nasr] is going to run competition rings around her. Her power base has been somewhat affected by the competition of this young African American who is going to be historically the first black female editor of a great, great magazine. There are only two great magazines, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. If you’re going to at least make a statement, name what your mistakes were and own up to it dear, no apologies necessary, all we want is respect, that’s all we ever asked for.” Listen below and let us know what you think:
