Whitewash

8/6/2008 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Unless she just got vitiligo -- L' Oreal has some serious splaining to do about its bleached out Beyonce ad!

The ad features a severely Photoshopped Beyonce -- almost unrecognizable. So the question ...

Why do you always have to pull the race card TMZ?? Its reasons like this that all the bullshizz gets so blown out of proportion! And why are Blacks capitalized?? They are not God for crying out loud!!!

Well I don't know, I think it may be the lighting, and the light hair and the pic on the left is probably when she had a tan, plus the darker hair.

The media always portrays Beyonce in lighter tones. This is definitely not the first time this happens.

Her skin and hair look horrible that color. She's so much prettier her natural shades.

When she had a tan? Pleasssse she's BLACK not a tan white girl like she trys to be with that weave and nose job. Next, she'll probably bleach her skin for reals.

Well Well Well. All this company is saying is that they will hire blacks. They just don't want them TO BE black. This is nothing new. Blacks have always and will always be second class citizens. We are tired be angry.

They probably lightened her skin because the contrast btw. her skin color and hair color didn't look good. Personally, I think if they had left her with her natural skin color it would've made the hair color look super fake. And the haircolor is what they're trying to sell - not beyonce. People are too quick to cry racism. Guess it's easier to do that then use your brain and some common sense!

Oh, plz, TMZ, quit trying to start s**t. Beyonce has been "white" with blonde hair for awhile now; the pic on the left looks like she used too much L'Oreal self-tanning creme --- or has been photoshopped by the jizz @ TMZ.

Why does everything have to turn into a race issue? It's getting old real fast.

How can you even ask the question is this a slam on blacks? Is everybody going to get offended about everything? Good grief! It's not like Beyonce' didn't get paid and I wouldn't be surprised to find out she had a say in the final result either - or her people. I'm highly offended by White Trash and Typical White People but you don't see me out carrying signs on the street, now do ya? GET OVER YOURSELVES.

The thing is that black skin is ugly. Sorry. While black women can sometimes be beautiful (when they don't have huge foreheads, big lips, broad nose, etc.) the overly charred skin will always be a turn-off.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.
