Some social media trolls are accusing Kelly Rowland of bleaching her skin, and the former Destiny’s Child singer is not having it.
After Rowland, 37, shared some pics on Instagram from a recent photoshoot, some of her followers asserted her skin tone looked lighter than it had previously, concluding that she must be using some kind of skin-bleaching product.
Rowland appeared to be shocked by the accusations and quickly clapped back in a video on her Instagram Stories (which she later deleted but lives on, thanks to some fan accounts).
In the video, Rowland responds to trolls head-on. “I never answer questions like this because I think it’s so stupid,” she says.
“I am not the one to bleach my skin nor do I want to bleach my skin nor do I have to bleach my skin, I don’t even think that — it’s not for me.
“So, don’t go saying stupid stuff like that,” Rowland added. “You ever thought that it could be the lighting? I am still chocolate, forever chocolate, proud to be chocolate — shout-out to all my chocolate girls.”
