    so this dude doesn't even understand why he is being called a racist.
    you are a fucking racist because you are EXPLOITING the image of black people for your own WHITE ass. You might have payed a few dollars to the black woman that you motion captured but you are the one making all the future money because you OWN this digital creation.

    This is ridiculous! I look at this as he’s taking jobs from all the actual hard working models and some of his “robots” actually look fake in the face .

    This is only going to further the disconnect between societal beauty standards based off fashion/models and what people actually look like

    Vice news is getting just weirder and weirder. I get that people like fashion and are into this stuff, but it would be a super small number of people, and the narrative about the white man creating a black man, and the nonsense about "admiring blackness" - totally lunatic religious intersectionalists. Nothing makes them happy.

  • Pumpkinspice

    Personally I find this disturbing also a growing issue that humans wish to just erase careers for others. Models are meant to be humanly unique that’s the point of their appeal. Why is it also women that are subjected to this first.

    Given the amount of photoshop that gets used I didn't think models were really real for awhile. They were just templates.

    This vice Journalist is trapping herself.
    "Admiring blackness without ever having to deal with a black woman"

    What are you trying to say? haha

  • Francisco Falcão
    Francisco Falcão 4 months ago

    Is she really suggesting that it's different to "deal" with a black woman then with any other person?! That's racist!

    instead of getting a real black model & paying her... just create a black woman & collect all proceeds.

  • Ben Jordan
    Ben Jordan 4 months ago

    So he's basically enslaving a very dark-skinned digital model of a women to work for him, but he doesn't even pay her any salary. That's a new dimension of stealing from the black people. And this women doesn't even look African, she looks Western from her contours.

    "They still have to deal with a person" because he's at the end of the other line. Hahaha

    In many cases, the models don't quite look realistic enough, so it makes it look a bit off-putting or cringey. Uncanny valley.

    Square Enix already tried this with, Aki Ross, the world's first "virtual actress." Spoiler, it didn't work out very well.

  • Cyberphobe
    Cyberphobe 4 months ago

    Wow, I guess that dude didn't try very hard to break the uncanny valley, because that model is unsettling looking. It's also incredibly sexist. Why does it have to be a woman? You're not very "woke" VICE.

    To toot my own horn for a moment (ahem), years ago I predicted that there will be digital movie stars who will have a following and will be stars in selected movies.
    Put them in a CGI environment, and movies will be produced from basements.

    This guy: “I have perfected my dream woman: She is completely subjugated; doesn’t talk back; doesn’t laugh at me or have anything negative to say about me; I can turn her on instantly, on command; I can also turn her on wherever I wish; she doesn’t poop; she doesn’t eat; she have icky menses and I’ll _never_ get asked to buy her (un)sanitary napkins; can’t get get pregnant; doesn’t make me wear a condom, no judgmental in-laws … perfect in every way!”

  • MiVidaBellisima
    MiVidaBellisima 4 months ago +1

    She is so beautiful! But is this just an excuse to not pay actual models? There is a good point that dark skinned black models have a hard time getting modeling jobs and this could be an excuse to replace/exclude them entirely.
