Ashley Graham Says Her Racist Family Didn’t Accept Her Black Husband

Ashley Graham has made a name for herself as the face of thickness in the modeling world, and has maintained her marriage to hubby Justin Ervin in the process for the last 7 . But Ashley says the road was a little bumpy for her and her Black husband in the early days, particularly when it comes to her white, midwestern family.

Obviously…she was dead wrong. She found this out the hard way when she sprung a Black boyfriend on them without even so much as mentioning it first.
