Transgender model Munroe Bergdorf who was sacked by L’Oreal over a race row was ordered to stop using the word ‘N-word’ during a heated, controversial debate on Good Morning Britain.

The model hit headlines in September after she was dropped as the face of L’Oreal’s ‘all worth it’ campaign.

Munroe Bergdorf was on the ITV show as a guest, debating Twitter’s freedom of speech restrictions with broadcaster and writer Edward Adoo. They were debating this following the suspensions of Britain First leaders Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen.

During the debate, hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were forced to tell her to stop using the word.

29-year-old Bergdorf was invited on to discuss Twitter’s new freedom of speech restrictions to prevent hate crime on the social media site when she used the word several times to reinforce her argument in support of the changes.

After being warned by Morgan and Reid, Bergdorf said ‘Can I chip in here? I can’t say n***** and I’m going to say it”

Broadcaster and writer Edward Adoo, who was appearing alongside Bergdorf replied: “You’ve said it so many times. It’s breakfast TV, I don’t think that’s right.”

Piers Morgan also interjected: “Munroe, we would like you to stop using the word.”

But Bergdorf hit back: “This reaction of me using the n-word is seeing as more violent than the fact we are actually called this. It’s highly racist.”

On Twitter, GMB viewers were very divided with their opinions, some branding Bergdorf contradictory and having double standards but others wholeheartedly agreeing and standing with her.
