US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, 70, is admitting to “intolerant and hurtful” behavior that the publication may have engaged in; coming after worldwide protests after the death of George Floyd in police custody.

Last Thursday, Wintour sent out a note to all Vogue employees – acknowledging “hurtful and intolerant” behavior at the publication. The note states: “I want to start by acknowledging your feelings and expressing my empathy towards what so many of you are going through: sadness, hurt, and anger too. I want to say this especially to the Black members of our team — I can only imagine what these days have been like. But I also know that the hurt, and violence, and injustice we’re seeing and talking about have been around for a long time. Recognizing it and doing something about it is overdue.”

She continues: “I am proud of the content we have published on our site over these past few days but I also know that there is much more work to do. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me directly. I am arranging ways we can discuss these issues together candidly, but in the meantime, I welcome your thoughts or reactions.” Former Vogue staffer and friend, Andre Leon Talley, recently said that Wintour is “not capable” of human emotion.
