What is it about African American women and their natural hair that seems to always cause an uproar? Some people may not like the natural look of black women, but at what moment does discussing it go wrong?

Well QVC host Sandra Bennett quickly learned after having to issue an apology for “accidentally” making a rude remark about a Black model’s natural hair while selling bags by Dooney & Burke (Love B. Scott).

In the midst of describing the bag and model, Sandra said:

‘You may look back and think, “Why did I wear my hair like that?” But you’ll like your bag still.’

And you know it took little to no time for social media to go in on  Sandra and QVC to express their opinions.

Do you think Sandra’s comment was intentional or just an honest mistake?
