Refilwe Modiselle is not having it with people who keep calling her an “albino”.

Refilwe has once said that her living with albinism has not been easy.

Taking to her Twitter, Refilwe let South Africans know  that using the term “albino” is derogatory.

It all started when a Twitter user used the term to ask about models who are living with albinism.

Refilwe constantly reminds people to not refer to others with albinism as “albinos”.

She tweeted: “Please don’t refer to us as “albino”, it’s very derogatory. Come correct please, it’s person(s) with albinism. Correct referral is models with albinism. Thanks for coming to my #TEDtalk”
