Bhad Bhabie is striking back at critics who slammed her for darkening her skin by pointing to Lil Kim.
What We Know:
- The 17-year-old rapper did an Instagram Live session recently and pointed to Lil Kim’s light appearance and plastic surgery in her defense to her critics about darkening her own skin.
“I used darker foundation. Lil Kim uses foundation…no disrespect to her, but the girl wears foundation that’s too light for her face. The girl went and got a nose job to have a smaller nose like white people. Like y’all don’t see that? She turned herself into…like I said, no disrespect toward her. I don’t have no problem with it. She can do what she do and make her happy.”
- Earlier this month, Bhad Bhabie, whose birth name is Danielle Bregoli, posted an Instagram video of herself with the “Black girl look”, along with a face beat that may or may not have included fuller looking lips. In another video, Bregoli added that “Ion even need no wig” as some questioned the length of her straight mane.
- Her most recent explanation was aimed at critics who accused her of cultural appropriation and “blackfishing”. Bhad Bhabie said her darker skin was for a photoshoot and asked “Who wants to be Black? I don’t understand that. I just really can’t comprehend it.”
- Lil’ Kim took to her Instagram Story to address the issue, vowing to respond once the pandemic is over. “That Lil’ Kim hate different,” she wrote in a since deleted post. “How TF I become a target in the middle of a pandemic? There’s more important things going on in the world, but you better believe when this is all over ima put a date and address on it and seal it with a kiss.”
