Beyonce is stirring a hell of a lot of controversy with this new L’Officiel Magazine photoshoot!
In the shoot for the March issue of the French magazine, the R&B/Pop superstar appears in blackface as part of “paying homage to the African queens through the ages.” However, a lot of people don’t see the “homage” and actually think that Beyonce wearing blackface is offensive.
“Blackface is not fashion forward or edgy and in my opinion, it is just flat out offensive. Black folks must have a zero tolerance policy for any manifestation of blackface, period,” wrote one blogger.
“If people allow this blatant cross into the offensive zone there will certainly be more to come,” writes another. “Whether the decision to pass off blackface as fashion was made ignorantly or not, there has been enough rumble in the jungle for the industry to be aware of itself.”
