Kerry Washington graced the cover of InStyle magazine…and it is the LATEST Scandal.
Why?? because people are claiming that her skin was LIGHTENED! Social Media Uproar Alert.
InStyle released a statement saying:
“We are super fans of Kerry Washington here at InSyle. To feature her on the cover of our March spring fashion issue is both an honor and a delight. We have heard from those who have spoken out about our newsstand cover photograph, concerned that Kerry’s skin tone was lightened. While we did not digitally lighten Kerry’s skin tone, our cover lighting has likely contributed to this concern. We understand that this has resulted in disappointment and hurt. We are listening, and the feedback has been valuable. We are committed to ensuring that this experience has a positive influence on the ways in which we present all women going forward.”
Kerry also tweeted about the issue saying: “Beautiful statement. Thank u 4 opening this convo. Its an important 1 that needs to be had.”
