Faith, one of the nieces of Vanity Tokyo, best known for “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” was pulled out of class for wearing braided hair extensions to school.


The girl had been attending Christ The King Parish School in Gretna, Louisiana for a couple of years with no major problems. However, a video of her crying in what seemed to be the principal’s office and then leaving the school went viral in no time.

That recording was shared by Faith’s brother, Steven Fennidy, who wrote in the caption that even though he hated to be posting that, he just had to do it because it “wasn’t right.”

He added that Faith had worn her little black extensions to school for the previous two years and that there was nothing wrong about it.


However, they allegedly created a policy without consulting any parent that said that extensions, clip-ins, and weaves were not allowed anymore because it was not part of the uniform.

“Faith got a notice on the first day of class, and it’s ridiculous that these schools that we are PAYING for, will go in and make policies without consulting or trying to figure out how this will affect your life or your child’s life,” pointed out Steven.


He added that Faith’s extensions made her hair easier to maintain and it made possible for her to get into the swimming pool without having to re-do her hair every night.

Steven pointed out that the policy would only affect black children and it was a barrier to entry for black people.

Since Vanity used her social media accounts to make the video viral, other celebrities like T.I. and Shaun King have shared their thoughts on it admitting that it was an attack on black people in general.

According to Daily Mail, the Archdiocese of New Orleans said that the policy had been communicated to all parents. Faith’s parents are allegedly filing a discrimination lawsuit against the Christ The King Parish School.
