British Vogue editor Edward Enninful ‘racially profiled’ by security guard at work

The editor of British Vogue has said he was racially profiled by a security guard as he entered his workplace.

Edward Enninful said he was told to “use the loading bay” as he entered the offices in central London on Wednesday.

Mr Enninful has been the fashion magazine’s editor-in-chief since 2017.

He said in a Twitter post on Wednesday: “Today I was racially profiled by a security guard whilst entering my work place.

“As I entered, I was instructed to use the loading bay.

“Just because our timelines and weekends are returning to normal, we cannot let the world return to how it was.

“Change needs to happen now.”

Mr Enninful, who was awarded an OBE in 2016 for his services to diversity in the fashion industry, said Conde Nast, which owns British Vogue, “moved quickly” to dismiss the security guard following the incident.

In an Instagram post to his one million followers, he said: “…It just goes to show that sometimes it doesn’t matter what you’ve achieved in the course of your life: the first thing that some people will judge you on is the colour of your skin.”
