Lupita Nyong'o criticizes Grazia UK Magazine for editing her photo

Award winning Kenyan US based actress, Lupita Ny'ongo has tweeted that UK magazine Grazia has "edited out and smoothed" her hair to fit what she says is a Eurocentric view of beauty.

She shared the November cover of the magazine alongside the original pictures in which she has longer hair


"Disappointed that @GraziaUK edited out & smoothed my hair to fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like. #dtmh," she said.

Nyong'o also used the hashtag #dtmh (don’t touch my hair), which is a title of a song by Solange about people respecting black hair.
