Lupita care cover

LONDON (AP) — British magazine Grazia U.K. has apologized to Lupita Nyong’o after the actress accused it of altering her hair on its front cover “to fit a more Eurocentric notion” of beauty.

The Academy Award winner tweeted before-and-after images, saying the magazine “edited out and smoothed” her hair. She added the hashtag “dtmh (don’t touch my hair).”

On Instagram, the Kenya-raised star of “12 Years a Slave” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” said “there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hairstyle and texture.”

The magazine said Friday that it “apologized unreservedly to Lupita Nyong’o.” It said it had not altered the images itself or asked the photographer to do so, and “is committed to representing diversity throughout its pages.”

Just last month Solange Knowles, who popularized the song ‘Don’t Touch My Hair’ accused Britain’s Evening Standard to editing her braided crown off the cover. Even the journalist who interviewed Knowles publicly distanced herself from the piece.
