Lil’ Kim is no stranger to criticism and has previously been unfairly bullied for her appearance and called out for Photoshopping her images, but she has now dramatically altered her look.
Sporting bright blond hair and much paler skin, Lil’ Kim took to Instagram on Sunday to share a collage of images. She captioned the post with “Miami Heat!!!,” along with a number of fire emojis — making no comment about her change of appearance. However, her fans do have a lot to say about the new look and have expressed how upset they are that she didn’t realize how beautiful she was in her earlier years.
“I really adore you but Boo u need to be happy with yourself y change your skin color.. u not happy being black,” mzindependent270 asked.
“She really losing it it’s sad that you have to become a white person to love yourself #lovemydarkskin,” michelle_ozuna wrote.
“Sad that you hate yourself so much,” rr_tm shared.
“Accept you’re skin , dark is beautiful!” z_19_19 wrote.
Lil’ Kim has not spoken out about her transformation and whether it’s permanent, but there are some people who have come to her defense and are encouraging others to do the same.
“@lilkimthequeenbee You’ll always be the OG Queen that taught me a girl could run with the boys and get money. Life is short baby, do you!” manerdo wrote.
“I hope u don’t read ur comments n if u do I hope they dont hurt your feelings people are soooo mean!” tr3yway87 wrote. “Your a bomb ass artist and a very sweet personality and u can dress ur mf ass off I would lovvvve to play n ur closest….”
