@orangechild_ narrated on Twitter: "So apparently my baby sis got rejected by a makeup artist ( client ) because apparently when booking a face model she didn’t know she was an amputee ... got there and she lied to her that something came up.
"Went someplace private to call her manager to rant about why the agency should send her an amputee.. like she was a plague. It’s so devastatingly sad that In this day and age people still see amputee as ‘not enough’ "
