CHRISSY TEIGEN STANDS UP TO RACISM!

Way to go Chrissy Teigen, for standing up to racism! After popular designer Michael Costello allegedly made some very racist comments to followers on his Instagram page, he then tried to cover it up, after followers screenshot and started to repost it. 

The comment read; "Your just probably a dumb nigger defending her. I am royalty bitch! I dressed Beyonce! Who are they gonna believe!" -Michael Costello

Apparently Mr,Costello forgot how many followers could be watching at that very moment and screenshot the comment before he subsequently deleted it. As instagram users began reposting the racist comment, they used the hashtag #MichaelCostello, some even calling for a boycott! 
He then began a contest using the same #hashtag in an effort to cover up and/or over shadow his racist comments. 

Wife of John Legend and Model Chrissy Teigen left a very firm message on his page showing her disgust of his racist comment. 

Her comment read; "So you say all that racist shit and get that horrible press with people using the hashtag #michaelcostello to call you out on it, then you create a contest where you beg people to use the same tag but in a positive light. Covered up all the negative press. Genius and shady all at once. Start a PR firm. Xx"

Her comment was of course later deleted, but not before swift instagramers screenshot and reposted it! If more celebrities took a stand against the wrong doing of their peers, maybe we would see a difference in how so called "Royalty" as Costello called himself, treats others especially publicly. #MichaelCostello boast about dressing Beyonce I'm curious to her take on his use of the word "Nigger". Salute Mrs.Teigen!

The question is, how did all this start? I've done a little research and came across a boutique on instagram @flyeffortlessly87 (please see picture) who alleges Michael Costello purchased an item from her, which she designed and later began posting it on his models, changed the name of the dress, and advertised it as if it were one of his designs. The page has PayPal images showing the sale, and images of the dress on both pages.
This is certainly an interesting twist.

Someone whos twitter bio claims to be Michael Costellos publicist, tweeted me saying "@prgirlangel @EntPrescription The image is a fake. You can read his full statement here >> goo.gl/GTgIke "

My reply was, "How was I able to see the comment on his page if it is fake?" I have yet to get a reply.
