AceShowbiz - Hailey Bieber (previously known as Hailey Baldwin) has silenced a "racist" troll on Instagram. The 22-year-old model jumped into the comment section of Normani Kordei's Halloween post after someone criticized the singer for dressing up as Cher for the festivity.
The former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant channeled the "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" hitmaker in a photo she shared on Thursday, October 31. She recreated a semi-nude photo shoot Cher did in 1979, wearing a shimmering silver wig that cascaded down over her chest.
While many of her followers, including Kylie Jenner and Rowan Blanchard, were mesmerized by her transformation, one user thought that Normani, as a black woman, should not have dressed as a white performer. The said user wrote below the picture, "I don't think this is the right costume for a black girl. Cher is white and Cher was thing, Cher did a lot you not even close to her you black people think you own everything not fair you could've done beyonce or rihanna or janet but no cher cher is white respect her."
Hailey completely disagreed with the said user and let her opinion be known. She responded to the critic, "There is absolutely nothing wrong with Normani dressed up as Cher for Halloween." Further defending the former Fifth Harmony member, the wife of Justin Bieber continued, "What do you mean by the first sentence? She can do it because she wants to, she is doing much better than you, you're behind a computer complaining about a costume. Stop being racist and get out of her page if you don't like it. It's 2019 and you're still supporting the garbage of [President Donald] Trump, Marta."
Hailey has since been applauded for speaking up against the online troll. "Well said Hailey. Racism has no place in this time. It must be abolished," one supported the daughter of Stephen Baldwin. Another added, "People are so dumb! Glad Hailey stood up for her."
