Rapper and actress Lil’ Kim has become a part of a controversy. She recently posted a photo of herself on social media and people couldn’t help but think why she looked so different.
She had already admitted that she had work done on her nose but this time, it was more than a new nose and blonder hair – it was her new skin colour. The rapper is believed to have gotten a skin lightening treatment.
Over a decade ago, she had admitted to a radio personality Angie Martinez and said:
People think I did it because I had low self-esteem, but that wasn’t the case. I think I did it because I was a little too vain.
Her fans and friends took to social media to share their thoughts:
Lil Kim's transformation isn't even funny she's a sad product in which white supremacy effects the psychology of POC pic.twitter.com/EMhqmOcQNg

I hope Lil Kim finds someone that teaches her true beauty and self love. The mind is a scary place.

I feel bad for Lil Kim, honestly. Not everyone is strong enough to weather the hatred against them. Shamed before and shamed after. Sad.
