Photoshopping in magazines is nothing new. From making waists slimmer to getting rid of hair flyaways, it’s a part of the editing process. But when an actress’ complexion seems to be lightened, therein lies a problem.

Oscar-nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o  of “12 Years a Slave is in the latest issue of “Vanity Fair,” and it appears that her skin was lightened. In the below video, you can see a clear difference between her skin tone and what shows in the picture.

In a discussion with “NewsOne Now,Jeffrey K. Lyles says that photoshopping happens to everyone, including actress Jennifer Lawrence, so it is no surprise that Nyong’o’s complexion was lightened. Blogger Eben Gregory disagrees, “I think what’s going on is there is starting to be an awakening and Black folks are starting to say, ‘Listen, you cannot continue to do this.’ We’ve got to continue to bring attention when these incidents happen and let the powers that be know that this is not acceptable, and more importantly, you do not have to do this.”

Watch the discussion below:
