Lily May Mac is an Australian Filipina model with over 3 million followers on Instagram. Her social media following contributed to her popularity, where she was able to collaborate with brands and soon launched her own makeup collections.

Not only does she discriminate against Asian men, but she discriminates against her true identity as a Filipina. She goes by Lily May Mac, but her birth name is Lily May Macapinlac, and she is pure Filipino.
