Tina Knowles slams critics for accusing Beyonce of bleaching

“Stupid ignorant self, hating racist statements” — Tina Knowles goes on the defensive for daughter, Beyonce.

Tina Knowles, mother of pop icon Beyoncé, took it personal with daughter’s online critics after narratives had alleged that the singer had bleached her skin to look white in a recent Instagram video.

The social media uproar arose after Beyoncé’s appearance at the Renaissance concert film premiere showcased what some perceived as a lighter complexion.

In response to comments and insinuations suggesting Beyoncé’s skin tone had changed, Tina Knowles, aged 69, took to social media to address and refute the criticisms directed at her daughter.

Expressing her frustration with the online detractors, Knowles posted a video on Instagram featuring Beyoncé’s appearance at the premiere, accompanied by a lengthy caption denouncing the unfounded claims and defending her daughter’s choices.

“I am sick and tired of people attacking her,” Knowles stated vehemently in her caption, firmly rejecting the suggestions that Beyoncé was attempting to lighten her skin or imitate a white persona.

‘Came across this today and decided to post it after seeing all of the stupid ignorant self, hating racist statements about her, lightening her skin, and wearing platinum hair wanting to be white,’

Knowles elaborated on the context behind Beyoncé’s appearance, explaining that the singer’s look was specifically crafted for the Renaissance documentary, emphasizing a theme centered around silver, including silver hair, attire, and a silver carpet.

‘Where the whole theme is silver with silver hair, a silver carpet, and suggested silver attire and you bozos decide that she’s trying to be a white woman and is bleaching her skin?’

She debunked the accusations, asserting that Beyoncé’s style was a deliberate fashion statement aligned with the documentary’s theme and not an attempt to emulate a white woman.

Addressing the derogatory comments, Knowles expressed disappointment at the perpetuation of negative narratives by some individuals within Beyoncé’s own community, branding such assertions as stemming from hatred and jealousy.

‘How sad is it that some of her own people continue the stupid narrative with hate and jealousy,’ she seethed. ‘Duh, she wore silver hair to match her silver dress as a fashion statement clown. ALIEN Superstar duh!’

Highlighting the fashion-oriented nature of Beyoncé’s appearance, Knowles concluded her impassioned defense by dismissing the baseless claims and reiterating that her daughter’s choice of silver hair and attire was simply a creative expression and a tribute to the documentary’s theme.
