Modelling agency, Sync Model Management, has cut ties with Miss South Africa hopeful Bianca Schoombe.
Schoombee began trending on Twitter as a favourite potential finalist among the public after posting photos of herself as part of her Miss SA entry.
The love quickly turned into disappointment and outrage, however, on Wednesday when offensive tweets posted by her over six years ago were dug up and widely shared.
Sync Director, Alessandro Bergman, confirmed that they have terminated its contract with Schoombe.
Bergman said in a statement: “The SYNC Group was flabbergasted to learn of such behaviour from one of our models. Therefore, out of respect for the other SYNC models and our clients, Bianca Schoombe and SYNC Models have mutually agreed to part ways in a civil manner, as well as her current contacted campaigns have been cancelled with immediate effect.”
“The mutual decision to release Ms Bianca Schoombe was due to the fact that she is in breach of her agreement and we do not condone any form of racial discrimination as we strongly believe in diversity and equality,” said Bergman.
