Default Naomi Campbell Victimized by British Airways?

Although she has pleaded guilty, Naomi Campbell defends her actions last April at Heathrow Airport in London. The supermodel pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting an officer and one count of disorderly conduct last week. Now Naomi is claiming she was called a racial slur by airport staff. Naomi said, "I was called a racial name on that flight. It had nothing to do with the police but British Airways. I was called a golliwog supermodel.

Golliwog refers to an old black caricature doll in case you didn't know.

But the golliwog supermodel, er I mean beautiful young model, is that politically correct? (hey, we don't want Naomi going ape shit on us) for making a bad joke. Does admit her actions were out of order.

Naomi added, "I’m proud to be a black woman, I’m proud to be British, I’m proud of the job that I do but I did not call anyone names of color, of their race."

A rep for British Airways denies any wrongdoing: "British Airways does not accept any allegations of racism. We are proud of our diversity."

Naomi was sentenced to 200 hours of community service and a 2,945 pounds ($4,604) fine last week.
