UPROAR as Vanity Fair Magazine is Accused of Lightening Lupita Nyong’o’s PICs

They photographed her but social media users noticed that the magazine lightened up her skin in the photos maybe to make her look whiter than she is.

Then Twitter users responded;




The same has reportedly happened to Beyonce and India Arie. They have all been previously lightened to make them look whiter than they are. Is this really right?
