Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star Spice is getting some backlash for bleaching her skin.
The Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta star, real name Grace Hamilton, took to social media to post a photo of herself sporting long blonde hair and a noticeably lighter skin tone.
“Nothing wrong with a fresh start,” she captioned the image before promoting her new mixtape ‘Captured’ and encouraging her fans to pre-order it.
However, the topic of Spice’s new music was somewhat eclipsed in the comments section by fans discussing her shockingly different appearance, and wondering whether or not it was down to Photoshop.
It’s sad that you bleached your skin,” wrote one fan.”What type of message do you think you’re sending out there to other lil black girls who get picked on because of their skin color? To change their skin too? This sad.”
“Who are we to judge, people, get plastic surgery she chooses to bleach her skin,” debated another. Interestingly, Spice deleted all of her previous posts before revealing her new look.
Model Leomie Anderson posted a video of the dancehall star discussing her new look discussing why she changed up her look, with Anderson describing the situation as “sad”.
