4. Her reply
The model Winnie Harlow said that “I am not a vitiligo sufferer’, I am not a vitiligo model. I am Winnie Harlow, I am a model and vitiligo is just a mere part of my life”. It’s quite clear that she’s definitely not suffering from it.
5. What happened next
Winnie Harlow didn’t stop there. She further wrote that she’s definitely not suffering. In fact, she’s succeeding at setting an example. You are wrong if you made vitiligo her identity.
