Lupita Nyong'o Addresses Being Photoshopped in Grazia UK Magazine
Lupita Nyong'o is constantly experimenting with her natural kinks on and off the red carpet. But when she saw her natural hair photoshopped on the November cover of Grazia, she released a powerful statement. "I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too," she wrote on Instagram.
Lupita continued to explain that society still has work to do when it comes to crushing traditional beauty standards: "there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture," she said. Lupita ended her poised clapback with the hashtag #DTMH, a nod to Solange Knowles's black-girl anthem "Don't Touch My Hair."
