You may recognize Carissa Pinkston as an Instagram model who has been featured in Rihanna's Savage X FENTY ads.https://www.instagram.com/p/BzimEHKg4n5/Unfortunately, Pinkston is now in the spotlight for some extremely problematic behavior. It all started whe some of her transphobic comments from Facebook were brought to light. In more than one post, Pinkston argued that being transgender does not make you a woman. Facebook The 20-year-old model made this comments as recently as this past May. An old friend of Pinkston's named Cecilia Jinks screenshot the comments and posted them to Twitter.Pinkston's first reaction to having her anti-trans comments exposed was to come out as trans, which she did in a now-deleted Instagram post. However, people who knew Pinkston, including Cecilia Jinks, were able to quickly verify that this was a lie. And seeing that the internet is what it is, word got around that this coming out story was far from genuine.Pinkston then decided to finally tell the truth and admit her lies in another since-deleted Instagram post. Naturally, people are not pleased with how things went down.Let me get this straight, Carissa Pinkston was exposed for transphobic comments she made a mere *month* ago et instead of taking accountability, apologizing, utilizing the resources at hand et educating herself, she decided to LIE about being trans herself???— GoodGalReRe (@_reneebu) July 24, 2019 imagine being a model who got exposed for being a raging transphobe/saying extremely transphobic shit in the past and then resorting to LYING ABOUT BEING TRANSGENDER ONLINE FOR CLOUT IN ATTEMPT TO SAVE YOUR CAREER...? i know this person irl and she is SO CISGENDER?? Y’ALL I-? pic.twitter.com/GtB55p8Cr5— aaron philip (@aaronphilipxo) July 23, 2019 https://twitter.com/BecomingElliott/status/1155993769621147651Oof, what a mess. Using your public popularity and platform to make hateful comments about a disenfranchised group of people is bad enough, but to then pretend to be a part of their struggle in an attempt to save your reputation is...next level.Let's hope Pinkston has learned a valuable lesson here and is ready to do some growing.
