‘But They Sell Bleaching Cream Tho:’ Dencia Calls Out Lupita Nyong’o Over Lancôme Endorsement
Dencia—the African singer who has been receiving tons of negative media attention due to her decision to push a skin lightning product—recently took to social media to call out Oscar Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o as a hypocrite for her new endorsement deal with Lancôme.
It all began when one Twitter user aggressively tweeted Dencia with news of Lupita’s new deal with the cosmetics brand.
“B***h Lupita is the new face of Lancôme!! SHE WINS!! And you’re just TRASH,” the follower tweeted.
Dencia, however, struck back by pointing out that Lancôme also carried skin lightening products.
And shared the following message to followers:
“Lol people hate what they don’t have & will jump on it if they had the opportunity.I said before she couldn’t call them big brands owned by whites cuz she wanted a deal. I like how she played herself tho!!still gonna answer yes ma’am & I’m still a CEO & entrepreneur & Lancôme will never pay her what I make in a month, b4 u come say I am hating I ain’t lol I am milking it.”
This of course, wouldn’t be the first time Dencia called Lupita out. She also went on a Twitter tirade against her following Essence’s Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon after Lupita shared the story of a fan who almost bleached her skin using Dencia’s Whitenicious cream.
