I agree about not feeling offended about every single thing that's said about certain country, group, race, etc. But I do critique his lack of inteligence, why couldn't he use just a different word? And it's not like he did it in a face to face conversation, he tweet it for the whole world to see, those who waits it's time following him.

Almost asking for people to feel offended, now that I think about it, it may have been a publicity stunt.

Yeah sure. Us minorities are just waiting to play the race card. Being pc is like being polite at a party where you know no one. Say what you want in private but when you broadcast it to the world expect opposition. Its elementary. "Eagerly awaiting", "moaning". Tackless.

In America, yes the n----a word is used everywhere, music, among friends, etc. BUT still, when known figure like Andrej Pejic is WHITE, and is somewhat famous, shouldn't have used the word, yeah, he didn't mean it in a derogatory way, but still he used it. I'm assuming he's educated, he just made a mistake. I don't know if in Australia they know how bad the word really is, as we do here in America.

Here in Australia we know how offensive the word is so i don't think he can plead ignorance. He was probably trying to come across as edgy, but ended up looking obnoxious and insensitive.

I think everyone in the "civilized" world knows the history of the n-word. It is really unappropriate word to say here in Finland, too.

To other model behavior. I think the topic of Andrej's tweet has had both sides of its case presented sufficiently.

^well it just goes to show how quick things get around in today's technology. Models are a lot smarter now (or at least most of them), and know that they are always being watched. Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and blogs only take seconds to get information around and it's only been a few years.

Well, it used to be that you could rely on Naomi to throw a phone, Janice to fall down some stairs (or flash her boobs), or Paulina to give interviews dismissive of the fashion industry. There is nothing like that going on right now. How about positive examples of model behavior? Someone posted that runway video. Does anyone else have examples like that? Of a models doing good deeds?
