AceShowbiz - Blac Chyna has addressed skin bleaching allegations, months after she launched a skin lightening cream, Whitenicious X Blac Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream, in partnership with Whitenicious by Dencia. While the expensive cream is targeted to fight hyperpigmentation and dark spots, some online trolls accused the reality TV star of using it to bleach her skin after her skin appeared lighter.
In the new episode of her Zeus network's series "The Real Blac Chyna", the mother of two denied she ever bleached her skin. "When I used to go to Miami my skin was a little bit darker so that raised this whole controversy thing to where it was said that I was bleaching my skin which I wasn't," she said during a conversation with Dencia.
Speaking about skin color, cosmetics queen Dencia defended their rights to do what they want with their bodies. "Coming from West Africa, I've never had a colorism conversation," she shared. "You guys fight for your rights to do dumb stuff every day, why can't I do what I want with my body. If I want to be tan today, I would do it. If I want to be shades lighter, I would do it cause that's what I want," she argued, to which Chyna nodded in agreement.
But not everyone agreed with Chyna and Dencia. The Shade Room posted a clip of their conversation on Instagram and people flooded the comment section with criticisms about how the two ladies don't seem to embrace their natural skin color.
"If she wants to hate herself and look like an extraterrestrial, let her," one user reacted. Another slammed Dencia for the message that she delivered with her statement, "The ignorance spilling from Dencia's mouth. Ewww. It's really and truly disgusting."
Someone else said it's not just about their rights with their bodies, "It's deeper than doing what you want cause it's your body, so many people fought and died so our skin color could be accepted and it's still not." Another reminded them, "The Darker the Skin the Better." Someone else urged other people with dark skin color, "Black people love the skin you're in please DAMN."
Others, meanwhile, explained why Chyna's skin is not as dark. "Y'all, blac chynas father is light skin. Chyna does not bleach. She's originally light skin," one user pointed out the skin color of Chyna's father, while another added, "Chyna daddy is bright as f that's her damn color."
