The company reportedly said Redding News Review discovered posts disparaging black women, Indian Americans and Mexican Americans "does not represent COVERGIRL’s perspective. We agree his statements were inappropriate but appreciate that he has issued an apology. We are an inclusive brand and respect all people and cultures."
On Monday, Redding News Review recovered deleted Instgram posts from Charles. In the posts he launched racial and sexual epithets at black women, Indian Americans and Mexican Americans.
Charles, 17, posted the back of a black women's head saying: "what the hell....this is not ok" and how he wished he was a "chubby black woman."
He called an Indian man "stupid" for not having his shirt size and also posted about how Mexicans are not "allowed" to an event.
The posts come as last week he went on a racist tirade about Ebola in Africa. He said on Twitter: “I can’t believe we’re going to Africa on Friday omg what if we get Ebola?”
