FHM Editor Brendan Cooper announced that Jessica Leandra Dos Santos’ who recently tweeted the K word is no longer FHM Modelbook 2011.

“FHM was appalled by Jessica’s racist tweets and would like to formally announce that she has been stripped of her title as winner of the FHM Modelbook 2011 competition with immediate effect.

It’s important to us that it is noted that she in no way represents the magazine; she was merely the winner of an online poll we ran, and that we totally distance ourselves from her blatantly racist comments,” he said in a statement.

Pictures of her have been removed from the magazine’s website and they promise they will have nothing to do with her in the future.

South Africans were seething on the social networking site Twitter on Friday after a racist tweet by model Jessica Leandra made the rounds.

"Just, well took on an arrogant and disrespectful k****r inside Spar. Should have punched him, should have [sic]."

“FHM is a proudly South African magazine and say ‘No’ to racism,” Cooper concluded
