Fashion designer Tina Knowles passionately addressed allegations that her daughter, Beyoncé, had whitened her skin at the premiere of “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé.” The accusations emerged after Beyoncé appeared on a “chrome carpet” adorned in silver attire with platinum blonde hair. This sparked social media controversy about skin lightening.


Knowles took to Instagram on Nov. 28 to rebuke the claims, asserting that they perpetuated racism, sexism, and double standards. She shared a video compilation featuring Beyoncé and countered online remarks questioning her daughter’s motives. Tina emphasizes that the silver-themed premiere inspired the choice of attire.
In a lengthy caption, Knowles expressed frustration with accusations of Beyoncé wanting to be white, citing the theme-driven fashion choice. She called out the audacity of a white media representative seeking a statement about Beyoncé purportedly aspiring to be white.


Continuing her defense, Knowles highlighted the historical context of black celebrities, including Etta James, embracing platinum hair. She condemned the perpetuation of color bias, known as “colorism,” emphasizing its negative impact on minorities.


Knowles concluded her post by expressing exhaustion with those attacking Beyoncé and defending her daughter’s work ethic, talent, and resilience. She addressed the broader issue of jealousy, racism, sexism, and double standards, calling for celebration instead of unwarranted criticism. The post conveyed a protective and frustrated motherly tone, reflecting Knowles’ commitment to defending her daughter against baseless allegations.


Do you think genuine concerns fuel the accusations against Beyoncé for skin whitening, or are they just another example of society’s tendency to perpetuate harmful stereotypes?

Let us hear your thoughts!
