Is that Beyonce you ask???? Well if you are having a hard time recognizing Beyonce in this photograph, you are not alone! The diva is being criticised for looking a few shades lighter than she usually is. If it were not for her name plastered over this image below who would of known that it was the singer Beyonce.
Founder of ThisIsYourConscience.com told the New York Daily News. “It’s like, Again? Are we here again? I think in a lot of ways shes culpable because there’s history there,” Lincoln Anthony Blades. “She’s not saying explicitly you have to lighten your skin, but it does carry that inherent message,”
Beyonce also drew criticism for a 2011 photograph that showed her out shopping in Los Angeles. In that picture she also looked much lighter than normal.
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown said that the singer was causing harm to the self esteem of black and Asian kids, wrote in the Daily Mail:
“Too many black and Asian children grow up understanding the sad truth that to have dark skin is to be somehow inferior,”. “Of course, black and Asian parents work hard to give their children a positive self-image and confidence in their appearance, despite the cultural forces stacked against them. “But when black celebrities appear to deny their heritage by trying to make themselves look white, I despair for the youngsters who see those images.”
