People are editing famous black women to make them white, and it’s starting an online firestorm
Not even Beyoncé is safe
Here's what we're not going to do today: We aren't going to re-touch gorgeous photos of black female celebrities with our shitty-ass barbie.com photoshop skills, telling them that they would "look more beautiful" if they were white.
Not only because it's extremely untrue, but because it's racist as shit.
Earlier this year, a Twitter user posted edited photos of Rihanna claiming she would look more beautiful white
And his stupid post launched a thousand memes.
Now, the disturbing 'trend' is making a comeback
But this time it's not because people are making fun of it. Accounts have begun posting similar Tweets, with equally unsettling photos.
Blatant and disgusting bigotry aside, I mean come on, we just never needed to see this.
And while some Twitter users are claiming they're making a mockery of the original post, there are plenty that are not, where the user who posted them can be found defending themselves in the comments.
