Grazia Issues Apology For Removing Lupita Nyong'o Hair On Its Cover

Lupita Nyong'o says magazine'edited her hair

Lupita Nyong'o is "disappointed" with Grazia magazine for Photoshopping out her natural "kinky, coily" hair on the November 2017 cover.

She ended her Instagram post with a hashtag, #dtmh which translates to "don't touch my hair".

American singer Solange Knowles.

In September, hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj called out magazines for altering her hair while not doing the same to women of other races. The Evening Standard has since expressed its regrets for the mistake. Miko Branch, the CEO of Miss Jessie's, told Atlanta Black Star when she learned about a United Kingdom magazine changing Nyong'o's hair that the consensus is that Black people love the "Black Panther" star's natural hair.

The magazine has since "apologised unreservedly to Lupita Nyong'o".

She will also have a major supporting role in the highly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Black Panther which is due for wide release on February 16, 2018. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I can not support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture.

The controversial cover shot showed a short-haired and relatively light-skinned Lupita as opposed to the authentic black beauty who had her hair tied back into a ponytail when they took her photos.

But some people are not convinced that Grazia did anything wrong to edit Lupita's photo.

In total, the yield increases in the four states over the October projections increased corn production by 211 million bushels. Iowa and IL corn yield projections were increased by 3 bushels per acre, and IN projections are up by 8 bushels per acre.

In her original statement, Nyong'o said she was not consulted about the changes and would not have agreed to an "omission of what is my native heritage".

The Vietnam-born fashion photographer, based in NY, added: 'As an immigrant myself, it is my duty to be an advocate for the representation of diversity of beauty in this industry'. "I will demonstrate this in my work even more going forward".

She said she was "disappointed" it changed her hairstyle to "fit their notion of what handsome hair looks like".

In a lengthy Instagram post, the Oscar-winner spoke on embracing her natural hair and skin complexion, despite being taught to believe she was less-than handsome in her youth.

In conclusion, Le, who's photographed Vogue covers and Balmain campaigns, wrote that there is no excuse for what he did.

Nyong'o explained she had grown up thinking "light skin and straight" hair were the standards of beauty, but she now sees the beauty in her "dark skin and kinky, coily hair".

She explained that it was "an incredibly monumental mistake" and has to apologize to Ms. Nyong'O and everyone else offended by her choice. "I want to thank Lupita for addressing this important issue". "But we apologise unreservedly for not upholding the highest of editorial standards in ensuring that that we were aware of all alterations that had been made".
