Kenya-Mexican actress and Oscar award winner, Lupita Nyong’o has called out the UK-based magazine Grazia Daily for allegedly tampering with the looks and giving her picture somewhat European looks.

Lupita, once featured in Earth’s most beautiful persons list expressed her disappointment with the magazine on Twitter.



She went further on Instagram, going into the depths of her disappointment with the magazine.


Lupita says, had she been consulted, would have not “support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that the is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style, and texture.”

Ironically, Lupita further says that the days that she used to wish she could change her looks are long gone.

There’s room in this world for beauty to be diverse… For me, makeup is not a necessity. Makeup is not a mask; it’s an adornment, an accessory.”
