The 33-year old California native hit up Instagram over the weekend, posting an image of herself as a toddler, along with a few choice words for those who dare to question her love of self.
Acknowledging the stupidity of the rumor, Meagan says she still felt compelled to speak up, noting her large following of young female fans who may inadvertently misconstrue her silence as an admission.
Below is Meagan’s full quote, as well as cutie-patootie pic of her taken at 8 months.
I can’t believe I’m actually going to address this nonsense lol … Buuuut I have young women who follow me – so I think its important to give clarity because I believe that black and every other color is beautiful .. This is for those who believe that I would actually bleach my face and entire body to try to be lighter skin ???? smh …. Umm ???? No Ma’am ?. First off? I LOVE my complexion- no matter what side of the spectrum I’m at at any particular time… My skin looks various different ways for various reasons – from lighting to makeup ..style of photography or something as simple as weather and what coast on working on at any given time…?? This is my complexion-the one I was born with… I tend to get lighter and darker depending upon how much sun I do or don’t get. I looove the sun ???? I’m a Cali gal, but as I’ve gotten older and especially more recently, since I’ve gotten into my 30s, I tend not to be in the sun as much because it ages your skin terribly ????. Simply put -i’m opting to preserve my skin by protecting it and only making exceptions for vacations ????… Also for the rest of the people who feel as though my blonde hair is yet another way to look more caucasian ????????? “”GET. YO. LIFE. “”…. I went blonde for the same reason I went purple …and for the same reason I’ll probably go Green at some point ..because I felt like it. Once again , I acknowledge I really shouldn’t have taken the time to respond to this foolishness, but I felt moved to say something for every little brown girl that follows my page …I’m proud to be me brown or tan, thick or thin, natural hair or weave or dyed purple or green. Godbless ????. ..
