Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 38, has lashed out at British Airways (BA) bosses', accusing them of racism and branding the airline "disgusting", days after pleading guilty to assaulting two police officers on board a BA plane at Heathrow Airport.

She was sentenced to 200 hours community service and fined R12 000 at Uxbridge magistrate's court in west London on Friday.

Campbell was arrested in April on board a Los Angeles-bound plane

following a dispute over her lost luggage.

"I was called a 'gollywog supermodel'. I don't think that's really fair."

However, BA executives said: "BA does not accept any allegations of racism. We are proud of our diversity." - Wenn
