Lupita Nyong’o criticises magazine for editing her photo

Oscar award winning Kenyan actress Lupita Ny’ongo has tweeted that UK magazine Grazia has “edited out and smoothed” her hair to fit what she says is a Eurocentric view of beauty.

She shared the November cover of the magazine alongside the original pictures in which she has longer hair.

Nyong’o also used the hashtag #dtmh (don’t touch my hair), which is a title of a song by Solange about people respecting black hair.

The artist was also involved in a similar row with another UK magazine, Evening Standard, recently when it edited her cover photo.

The magazine has since apologised.

Solange had spent a lot of the article talking about her architectural braids.
