Also Monday, in a thread on Twitter, former Bon Appetit staff photographer Alex Lau said he left the magazine "for multiple reasons, but one of the main reasons was that white leadership refused to make changes that my BIPOC coworkers and I constantly pushed for."
She was responding to an earlier image posted on Twitter of Rapoport in brown face, in an apparent Halloween costume, from an Instagram post in 2013.
blame roger moore, blame anna wintour, blame all of the people in conde corporate that you've never heard of. Lau alleged that it isn't "solely a [Bon Appetit[ problem. this is a conde nast problem. they are responsible for creating this culture."
Representatives for Condé Nast did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Rapoport did not respond to an email inquiry.
The backlash against Rapoport and Bon Appetit came after the magazine posted an article of Black-owned restaurants organized by city, which the article said is "one practical, actionable way to stand in solidarity with the Black community now, and always."
Sohla El-Waylly, a chef and restaurateur who was hired last year as an assistant editor at Bon Appetit and has appeared in the BA Test Kitchen video series, said on her Instagram Story on Monday that only white editors are paid to make video appearances. She said she was hired at a salary of $50,000 to "assist white editors with significantly less experience than me."
The company had about 6,000 employees at the start of 2020. Condé Nast, hit by the economic downturn amid the COVID-19 pandemic, last month said it was laying off about 100 U.S. employees and putting another 100 on unpaid leave for several months, among other cost-cutting measures.
"In reality, currently only white editors are paid for their video appearances. None of the people of color have been compensated for their appearances." "I've been pushed in front of video as a display of diversity," she wrote.
In addition, a photo of Rapoport in brown face was posted on social media. Adam Rapoport, editor-in-chief of Bon Appetit, came under fire Monday with calls for him to resign or be fired after allegations that the Condé Nast food title pays white editors — but not people of color — for video appearances.
Condé Nast as a whole." El-Waylly said was demanding the resignation of Rapoport and alleged that this case is "just a symptom of the systemic racism that runs within…
"when i asked 'why have we shot food all around the world, but haven't touched the entire continent of Africa?', their response: 'oh you know, the recipes get tricky, and readers probably wouldn't want to make the food,'" Lau wrote on Twitter.
