While walking in a Ohne Titel show during New York Fashion Week, model Aamito Lagum sported a MAC lipstick, which the company shared a photo of on Instagram. That should have been that, but The New York Times reported that racist comments unexpectedly flooded the photo, which was a close-up of Lagum's lips in a deep purple shade called "Royal Romance," a lovely name unsuited for a barrage of hate.
