“I went to an unlicensed esthetician who convinced me that I needed to get rid of some sun damage. And a few months later, I am like five shades lighter than I actually am and it was a really traumatic experience because I really trusted the person.” The actress also noted that when she expressed concern about the changes in her skin, the esthetician brushed them off, insisting the color would return to its original state.
“I kept asking her through the process, like ‘Is this what’s supposed to happen?’ She’s like, ‘Oh it’ll lift and it’ll come back.’ I got to the place of realizing I don’t know if it’s going to come back, I think I’ve been bamboozled.” She also shared her reaction to the backlash she received, admitting it was one of the most embarrassing experience of her life. “It was super embarrassing and super painful especially in the climate we’re in as black women.
