Naomi Campbell issued a statement towards gypsies in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She is quoted as saying Gypsies are “people with the rights and duties as all other citizens, and nobody must discriminate them in any way”.
It is true that they would like the same rights as all other citizens in Slovenia, but they definitely don’t want any duties. Gypsies in Slovenia get money from the country and they do not need to work like other citizens or pay taxes but they still steal from others, drive cars without registrations, fight and even commit more such crimes. So when they are not welcome anymore where they used to live it should not come as a surprise to anybody who knows the facts, Miss Naomi definitely doesn’t know the facts.
The only reason you can think of having hundreds of people converge at once to ostracize a group has to be a viable one. True that law has to be established but obviously people felt that a group of 31 was more troublesome to them and decided to act to protect themselves. We don’t agree with anybody going through hardships but nobody is above the law. For those of you who wish to learn more, visit this link and read the viewers comments.

Before commenting about something one should see all sides of the story, just because Naomi is in the limelight and makes a comment it gets published on Vogue online – I don’t think she knows much about the situation, we know the situation we live in Slovenia! The local papers don’t publish much about them but it is common knowledge among the population that they have been responsible for crimes and have so far gone free without prosecution.
