Moniece has something to say to fans thinking she doesn’t love her melanin.
“Love and Hip Hop” star Moniece Slaughter wants people to stop accusing her of bleaching her skin and do some research about her ancestors. The actress has been looking a bit lighter than fans are used to seeing her in the last few months, but she’s denying that she has done anything to lighten her pigment.
As Moniece chatted with fans on her live stream, someone accused her of using bleach and she clapped back ferociously, giving viewers a rundown of her family tree.
“[I’m] German and Native American. My mother’s father is pure ni**ga. My biological father is Asian and Black. My natural hair color is not black, it is light brown with a twinge of red. Same with my son’s hair. When I get into the sunlight, my eyes are light…damn near see-through.”
Moniece continued to explain the contrast in the color of lips compared to her facial tone.
“My lips are dark because I smoke cigarettes…soooo?? Y’all smoke roaches.”
Hit play to hear her full explanation.
Last year, Moniece said goodbye to the “Love and Hip Hop” franchise after 7 years of working alongside the epic reality TV series. Moniece, 33, felt like her focus should be more on raising her son, Kameron.
Moniece posted an unaltered photo of her skin with her shirt lifted to back up her claim she doesn’t bleach her skin.
“..Haven’t even washed my face ZERO filter of ANY sort,” exclaimed Moniece on Instagram.
“1st pic: my chest that gets ZERO sunlight. Compared to my arms & hands. My chest is MY WINTER COLOR PERIOD GET OVER IT!! So I’m going to bleach my face but not my lips. I’m going to bleach my face but not my chest, arms, hands, legs, & feet?”
Slaughter went on to explain that she sees a Black dermatologist to help build a healthy skincare regimen. She also said when fans do see her on TV or in pictures she’s usually under lighting and heavily made up, but do you think she’s trying to pull a fast one here?
Moniece then followed up with another post shortly after. The model and entrepreneur took a few more jabs at social media trolls just in case they didn’t get the message.
“Never forget. Back in February. Day before Valentine’s Day to be exact. Face. Neck. Chest. Arms. Hands. Legs. ALLLLLL THE SAME LIGHT COLOR. WHICH IS LIGHTER THAN I AM NOW DUMMIES,” she captioned.
