Blac Chyna partnering up with Africa’s bleaching king and queen to create a new face bleaching cream is beyond problematic.

It’s really rubbing me the wrong way, ain’t no way in hell she would do that in LA. Exploiting Nigeria’s colourism problem is disgusting

Some users came to Chyna’s defence by stating that skin bleaching creams were already in existence and that Blac Chyna is merely collaborating with Whitenicious, and is not the creator of the brand.

That lightening cream has been selling for years!!!! I think blac Chyna is not the problem and if she wants to make money from it.. then she shouldn’t be judged. if black women didn’t want to look lighter to be more appealing to black men. this won’t be happening!

Bleaching creams are not illegal in Nigeria. Nigerians love bleaching creams and there’s a huge market for it.

So why exactly are you guys angry that Blac Chyna is coming to sell bleaching creams in Nigeria?

I’ve been trying to understand this outrage since morning but I can’t.

First Blac Chyna is not the owner of that goddamn product. The Marketing Communications Manager Of Whitenicious has done their home work and learnt how good a market Nigeria is for their products.

Throwing in Blac Chyna is a bait for our hunger for Foreign trash.

Others tweeted that the problem of  skin lightening did not start with Chyna, “Skin lightening didn’t start with Blac Chyna”.

“I know for some of you, she may be an easy target, but we need to get to the root of the problem… how darker skinned black people have been conditioned to hate their complexion”.

Spokesperson for Chyna responded to TMZ; “Blac Chyna’s been using Whitenicious dark spot corrector for a few years to deal with her hyperpigmentation.

“We’re told Chyna felt this was a good deal for her because a lot of women of colour suffer from skin issues”.
