Putting aside whether him bleaching his hair is a bad idea, many of his fans thought that Channing resembles Eminem during the latter's late '90s and early 2000s era. As many might have already known, Eminem rocked a blonde buzz cut that time.
"WHY DID CHANNING TATUM DECIDE TO LOOK LIKE EMINEM WILL THE REAL SLIM SHADY S**T SIT THE F**K DOWN," one fan exclaimed, while another jokingly said that the Detroit rapper stole the "21 Jump Street" actor's Instagram account due the striking similarity. There was also people who joked that Channing was going to star in an Eminem biopic hence the blonde hair.

As shocking as it might be, this is actually not the first time for Channing to sport lighter hair color. Back in November 2015, the "Step Up" actor showed off his light brown hair while he was visiting Peru with then-wife Jenna Dewan. "Down in Peru loving life. Just sending love out there to everybody," he wrote in the caption of the post.
