Cynthia Bailey Forced to Clap Back at Fan Claiming She Bleaches Her Skin

Cynthia Bailey’s new selfie is drawing attention from fans for an unexpected reason.

Bailey found her light and let her eyes glisten in it in her latest Instagram pic.

“I am a woman. What’s your super power?” “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star asked in the caption of her Tuesday, Oct. 23 photo.

Fans gushed over the car selfie.

“You’re so beautiful 😍 inside & out & I ask Jesus to show me how to fall in Love with me again. 😍🙏🏽🙌🏾 (Pray)”

“So beautiful Cynthia 💕😍”

“Stunning beautiful lady.”

“Love ❤️is my super power. you look beautiful as always😍❤️😘”

“Them eyes is working beautiful ladybug…u killing’em beautiful.”

“Cyn 50 musta waited for you cause MOMMA you are in reverse 25 hot and as they say fine as wine, oh I’m a woman and believe we should encourage one another, so on that note in my MC Hammer voice can’t touch this.”

But one fan pointed out how pale the model seemed in her last few photos compared to how she usually looks.

“Cynthia, your last couple of pics seem off. It’s as if your getting lighter. Your FABULOUS BROWN!”

“@mrs_vp_ Lighting, I guess. I have always been the same skin complexion except when I am tan. Then I am much darker,” Bailey replied.

Bailey isn’t usually the target of skin lightening comments. That non-honor goes to her friend and fellow RHOA co-star Nene Leakes. The most recent time Leakes faced those accusations in July, leading her to hit back at the commenter.

“Love blonde hair on NeNe but her skin is remarkably lighter than when she first appeared on TV. What is it about brown women becoming famous that makes them bleach their skin??? Her, Tamar [Braxton], and others seem to be okay with being Black as long as they are light enough…has America convinced us dark Black women cannot be successful???” the Instagram user wrote.

“@darraghgrier you need help! I’ll be praying for you because your eyes ain’t working fo ya.”
