Sammy “Soft-White” Sosa Admits To Bleaching His Mug

Sammy “Soft-White” has finally come clean about his skin whitening:

Speaking publicly for the first time since photos of him from a recent musical awards ceremony were published on the Internet, Sosa said that the skin lightening is the result of the use of a facial cosmetic cream.

“It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some,” said the former slugger during the “Primer Impacto” program at the Univision Spanish network.

“It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily,” said a smiling Sosa during the interview.

The photo that has caused such turmoil was taken during the Grammy Latino Awards ceremony held last week in Las Vegas. It showed an extremely pale, smiling Sosa accompanied by his wife Sonia. The photo, distributed very quickly throughout Spanish- and English-language Web sites, caused speculation that Sosa was sick and quickly found its way to gossip-related sites.

Well, that bleaching cream worked its butt off on Sammy’s face. He looks like Ricky Ricardo now. SMH@ self-hatred and mutilation.

  • monique

    First…at least he has admitted it, but now he sees that nobody is feeling this change, so he should revert back to the way he used to look. Ditch the perm, the bleach, and the contacts. That was so the 90s anyway. Let it go and love your African roots, Sammy. You only are making people pity and think about how pathetic you are to be so old and yet so dumb.

  • MizASterling

    At least he’s honest,but he needs to come correct and admit that he rubs that mess all OVA his body, cause his ears and hands are the same colour as his face, and noones body and face are the same colour. Sorry. Just doesn’t happen.

  • justme

  • GET REAL

    We can talk bad about him but if he were to name the cream it would sell out in black neighborhoods.

    Glad he finally admited it because his first excuse was lame. Some of those creams cause cancer.

  • kerry

  • Ms.EJ

    This is just sad on so many levels, it really is. *sigh* This is no surprise that indeed he was bleaching no if ands or buts about it. SMH. Did he not think people were going to question what happened? Also, I would be terrified of the side effects he might suffer from this down the line.

    I’m in utter disbelief. For him, reality is being someone or something that he never was. If it makes him happy and doesn’t hurt anyone, I’m all for it. But it’s not to say I don’t get a good laugh from it.

    Stay positive, Stay conscious

    I don’t care what anyone says, skin bleaching does not look natural. It makes your skin look sick and pale and sometimes blotchy. I will never understand people using cream to lighten their skin, accept who you are and love the skin you are in!

    We can talk bad about him but if he were to name the cream it would sell out in black neighborhoods.
