Beyoncé gave everyone a sneak peek at her latest Pepsi ad after she posted the pop-art style image on her Facebook page early this afternoon.

In the Andy Warhol-esque image, Beyonce strikes a couple of poses including the ever-popular kissy face, a smile shot and one with a little attitude.

But it’s not the poses that have everyone talking, instead, people are pointing out the superstar’s very fair skin in the ad. (See below)


Some interesting Facebook comments under the photo from a few of her fans include:”ummmmm…why does she look Caucasian..?” and another that reads “And to look like a white chick. thumbs down for you Missi”; these are only two of the many fiery opinions posted about the image on the star’s page.

This is not the first time people have been upset over Beyonce’s skin color. Back in February 2012 L’Oreal faced a lot of criticism after they lightened her skin in one of their ads.(see below)


Pepsi has not released a statement on the ad but we won’t be surprised if they release one shortly.

What do you think of the image? Are people overreacting?
