Lupita Nyong’o acuza o revista ca i-a sters parul cret de pe coperta
Lupita Nyong’o acuza public revista britanica Grazia pentru ca i-a sters, in Photoshop, parul cret de la spate in fotografia de coperta.
In varianta originala, se putea observa cu lejeritate parul cret, specific femeilor afro-americane, dar, din motive necomunicate oficial, reprezentantii revistei au decis sa elimine acel detaliu.
As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, 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. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh
Lupita sustine ca nu a fost contactata in prealabil pentru a i se cere dreptul sa se faca aceasta modificare si acum, vazand revista pe piata, se declara dezamagita si isi expune pasul intr-o postare publica pe pagina ei de socializare.
