“I’d like to think some of my modeling was meaningful,” Coco said before referencing the “tons of calendars,DVD’s over 100 magazine covers and editorials” in her repertoire. “Power to the booty and strong healthy women!” she concluded.
Her post (pictured above) was well received… until it wasn’t.
“You for sure inspired women of a particular color to get their butts done no doubt….but not many sistas doll. Sorry pooh, but no,” Instagram user @swaykakez commented. “Black girls have known their whole life that big b*tts iz where it’s at. Growin up all my gf’s & some family members wanted my b*tt/body & still do. Alllllll natural baby.”
“Girl bye !! What’s your body type ???? Plastic ?!?” quipped user @black.muses.
“It was harder to work in the industry”
After a few more negative comments, Coco update her post’s caption. “This was posted Sunday 1/14 & ALL comments were positive until race was brought up today,” she began. “Let me remind you 20 years ago there were not a lot of white girls w/ thick bodies in the modeling game.” After saying that her curvaceous body wasn’t viewed as “the standard,” she stated that her experience working in the model world was “harder.”
“I was one of the 1st white models to break the mold & go mainstream with my body type and to let people know its OK to be curvy in the modeling world,” she concluded after adding, “Yesterday I felt I explained this thoroughly but I see some of you needed more details.”
