Justine Skye called out British Vogue’s controversial tweet on Tuesday, February 21, after the magazine failed to identify her in a photo as she hung out with Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Lily Donaldson.
The trouble began when the British glossy mag shared a photo of Skye, 21, Donaldson, 30, Hadid, 20, and Jenner, 21, looking all dolled up and posing together on a couch. While the image itself was par for the course with celebrity nightlife pictures, fans had a problem with the accompanying tweet.
“Bella, Lily, Kendall and co partied in London last night — see what they got up to, here: vogue.uk/gO9NNV,” the tweet read. Given that there are only four women in the photo, and that she was the only one not identified by name, some of Skye’s fans called foul.

Skye subtly shaded the fashion tome with a tweet of her own shortly afterward: “hi, my name is & co.”
The Brooklyn-based singer wanted to keep the offense in perspective, however, and followed up her first tweet with another, longer one a few minutes later. “This really isn’t that big of a deal compared to other situations we face as black women,” she wrote. “But I appreciate how y’all were on GO for me 💜 luv.”
The next day, Skye couldn’t resist just one more dig at the publication, sharing an image of her name card at a Moschino fashion week event, with the caption, “& co? lol.”
