Tina Knowles Defends Beyoncé Over Skin Bleaching Rumors
Tina Knowles doesn’t play when it comes to her children, and the recent rumor about Beyoncé bleaching her skin has gotten a heated response from the Knowles matriarch.
The Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé Los Angeles premiere was over the weekend where Beyoncé wore a silver dress and bleach blonde hair. Due to the lighting of the photo, Beyoncé’s skin looked lighter than usual which prompted people on social media to conspire if the megastar bleached her skin.
Tina Knowles Makes Instagram Post Defending Beyoncé
While the world was discussing whether Beyoncé used a lightning treatment on her skin, Ms. Tina took to Instagram to debunk the rumors and call out the racist remark.
“Came across this today and decided to post it after seeing all of the stupid ignorant self, hating racist statements about her, lightening her skin, and wearing platinum hair wanting to be white,” Tina wrote in the caption of a montage of clips of Beyoncé over the years with “Brown Skin Girl” across. The wording is a direct message to the controversy at hand and a nod to Beyoncé’s Grammy-winning song.
She continued: “She does a film, called the renaissance, where the whole theme is silver with silver hair, a silver carpet, and suggested silver attire and you bozos decide that she’s trying to be a white woman and is bleaching her skin? .. How sad is it that some of her own people continue the stupid narrative with hate and jealousy. Duh, she wore silver hair to match her silver dress as a fashion statement clown. . ALIEN Superstar duh! What’s really sad is that a white woman had the audacity to reach out to Neal Beyonces hairstylist she was from TMZ to say that the fans are saying that she wants to be white and she wanted to get a statement about it from Neal. . Well that made, my blood boil , that this white woman felt so entitled to discuss her blackness.”
“What’s really most disappointing is that the some Black people yes you bozos that’s on social media. Lying and faking and acting like you’re so ignorant that you don’t understand That black women have worn platinum hair since the Etta James days. I just went and looked at all the beautiful talented black celebrities who have worn platinum hair and it has been just about everyone of them at one time or another. Are they all trying to be white? I am sick and tired of people attacking her,” Tina added.
She concluded: “Every time she does something that she works her a– off for and is a statement of her work ethic , talent and resilience. Here you sad little haters come out the woodwork. Jealousy and racism , sexism , double standards , you perpetuate those things . Instead of celebrating a sister or just ignoring if you don’t like her. , I am sick of you losers. I know that she is going to be pissed at me for doing this, but I am fed up ! This girl minds her own business. She helps people whenever she can. She lifts up & promotes black women and underdogs at all times.”
Beyoncé has not addressed the rumors. Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé is in theaters this Friday (Dec. 3).
