Being incredibly thin and white have practically been prerequisites to becoming a Victoria's Secret model in the past. But according to Devon Windsor, it's hard out there for girls like her.

In a clip from the E! docu-series "Model Squad," Windsor — a white, blonde VS model — seemingly infiltrated a meaningful discussion about diversity in the modeling industry to complain about how hard it is to be her. It's just as cringeworthy as you'd imagine, and naturally, it shook up the world wide web.

The clip begins with model Shanina Shaik talking to fellow model Ping Hue about the racial discrimination she and other models have faced in the industry.

"I used to get bullied. Because of my skin color, I wasn't gonna be able to do high fashion," Shaik said. "A lot of black girls would have to miss Milan [Fashion Week] because they weren't able to walk in the shows because they don't want girls of that color."

When Olivia Culpo asks what they're talking about, Hue reasonably suggests that it's probably difficult for her and Windsor to relate to the conversation because *ahem* they're white and thin.

For some reason, this was triggering for Windsor and she got very defensive, explaining how hard it was to be blonde and move around a lot.

"I literally fucking went through hell," Winsdor said, explaining that she lived in a new country every month. "[I] didn't speak that language, didn't speak Paris, didn't speak Italian. Do you know how hard it is to be blonde? I have to get a highlight every month!" 

Here it is in all its wonderful cringe-worthiness.

First of all..."didn't speak Paris?" Um. What.

Second of all: YIKES. Rather than shutting up and listening to the women of color talk about their experiences with discrimination, she decided to take over the conversation and complain about some casual inconveniences (i.e. coloring your hair by choice!). 

I am face-palming so hard.

After the clip took off online, Windsor posted an apology that left much to be desired.

She claimed the show was highly edited, which it probably was, but STILL.

Many think her publicist or someone else on her team wrote up her apology, which doesn't help matters.

Culpo, who also appeared in the clip, backed up Windsor, also claiming the comments were taken out of context.

People weren't thrilled with Culpo for coming to her defense. For obvious reasons.

My question is, if the comments were "taken out of context," what was the intended context? Seems like a bunch of BS, but we'll see how it all unfolds.
