The commenter said she “looked better with dark skin,” going on to say that “her dark skin was above average…why did she bleach.”
Now we know social media often gives folks the confidence to say whatever is on their mind no matter how hurtful it may be, but Good took a classy approach in her response to the fan. She used this moment to educate and not belittle.
“I didn’t Queen, a (unbeknownst to me) unlicensed aesthetician gave me a product to correct a sun damage mark on my forehead that messed up my skin. By the grace of God only; I’m about 80% through recovery and regaining my color daily.”
Good shared how painful this has been for her, calling it a “traumatic experience.”
She added, “I’d really appreciate if you wouldn’t continue to spread assumptions and rumors,” before closing it out with a “God bless you” to the fan.
The statement has sparked lots of conversation on social media around whether or not Good could have ever been classified as dark-skinned. We want to hear from you.
Do you think this fan was reaching with her comment?
