AceShowbiz - Amid the Black Lives Matter movement, Khloe Kardashian is trying to be transparent about how things are in her Good American Jeans company. Taking part in Pull Up For Change challenge, the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star shared the racial diversity among the employees of her Good American denim and clothing brand.
In the Wednesday, June 10 Instagram post on the brand's page, it was revealed that the workforce is made up of 15 percent black employees, 32 percent persons of color and 52 percent white workers. "Diversity and inclusion has always been at our core, so we see this as an opportunity to highlight the consistent and constant work our brand has done to ensure our mission is felt at all levels of the company," so the account wrote in the caption.
"We are committed to continuing our focus on diversity throughout our organization: both within the talent and partners we work with and the employees at our office. We refuse to be complacent. Please note that our numbers add up to 99% because we had 99% participation from our employees," it concluded.
Some fans appreciate the post in the comment section as one wrote, "Thank you for being transparent and supportive." Another fan raved, "Love your clothes and what you stand for!"
However, some others didn't think that 15% was enough. "With a company with a Black ceo/cofounder, I would expect better numbers," one person noted. "So my initial thought was 15% is not bad given the Black population makes up 14% of US population. What I'd like to see is what positions are they at…if it's all customer service and warehouse then it's a problem," another critic said.
Khloe is not the only one who faced backlash for the lack of diversity among her employees. After revealing only 13% of her Kylie Cosmetics staff are black, Kylie Jenner was slammed by haters. "Hire more. 13 per cent is not enough when African Americans set the trends and standards in the beauty industry," one of them demanded.
