Blac Chyna slammed for fronting 'disgusting' skin-lightening face cream in Nigeria
For days now, Blac Chyna has been causing an uproar on social media as regards fronting with Skin-lightening cream for face.
Fans are really mad about the step she took, Trust Nigerians, they don’t give a dam when it comes to trying sh*t with them. Black is always beautiful
The reality star, who changed her name from Angela White, invited her 14.8 million Instagram followers to join her at the official launch of her first face cream on Sunday in Lagos.
Chyna has teamed up with brand Whitenicious to launch her product, which retails for $250 (£195) and comes in a “handcrafted jar with real Swarovski crystals”.
The post angered fans who accused her of exploiting Nigeria’s colourism problem..
One wrote: “Blac Chyna is going to Lagos, Nigeria to promote a bleaching cream and I am honestly disgusted.”
Another said: “Blac Chyna partnering up with Africa’s bleaching king and queen to create a new face bleaching cream is beyond problematic. It’s really rubbing me the wrong way, ain’t no way in hell she would do that in LA. Exploiting Nigeria’s colourism problem is disgusting.”
