Simply put: What the ELLE, Jeanne Deroo?

For reasons yet to be made clear, the Beauty Editor of this world famous fashion magazine posted to Instagram over the weekend.

Of herself in blackface.

Why is her skin made-up to be so dark and why is she wearing an afro wig?

She’s trying to be hip we guess? Or something? Deroo did not include a caption with the photo.

But the issue of blackface in Hollywood has been a controversial one for decades now and it was brought to the forefront on Halloween when Julianne Hough went blackface as a character from Orange is the New Black.

What do you think of this Jeanne Deroo photo?
