  • Vanity Fair is at the center of controversy after providing a sneak peak of a picture of “12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o.

    According to reports, the Internet and social media are ablaze with debate as people weigh in on whether the Oscar-nominated entertainer’s skin was deliberately lightened or if the photo shown had more to do with too bright, washed out lighting.

    The picture in question appears on Vanity Fair’s February issue ‘Vanities’ section.”

    “At press time, two-thirds of respondents to a Huffington Post Black Voices poll feel that yes, the magazine did this deliberately,” Fishbowl NY’s Richard Horgan stated. “There does not currently appear to be any official statement of response from the Condé Nast publication. The matter is making headlines not just here but also in Nyong’o’s native Kenya and the UK. . . . .”

    When asked for a response to the inquiry from Journal-isms, a Vanity Fair spokeswoman did not respond.

    What do you think? Did Vanity Fair lightened Lupita Nyong’o ‘s skin on purpose or was it a case of too much lighting?

    1. Umm yes they did, they always do, this is not anything new for our dark skin beauties. America does not accept dark skin people yet and it is 2014.

    2. of course it was!!! we all know it’s a concentrated effort to lighten up the blue-black image. it’s like something a ‘wise’ being once said. “they look at the athleticism of Negroids for years and say to themselves, ‘these are gods, these are not men.’ and with that train of thought do you think they would give us the mechanics of the mind?? or the sciences of the universe??’ said by Dr. Malachi Z.K.
