Black Twitter Debates Distasteful @LOreal Commercial Featuring Beyonce

L'Oreal is always trying it. And with Beyonce, at that. They know we love Bey, so they think they can engage in any manner of shenanigans regarding her skin color (lightening and brightening) and now her ancestry (plastering it on the screen, as if any other person has ever had to do this) for their collection.

I knew I had to run to @missjia 's timeline when Kenya said she looked like Beyonce. LOL. #RHOA

I have never seen anybody declare their multi-ethnic status the way Beyonce's was outlined at the beginning of the L'Oreal commercial. SMH.
Dr. Goddess EXPERT #BlackWallstreet #TulsaMassacre @drgoddess
Literally, on the screen, Bey says she represents many different things and it says "African American. Native American. French." Seriously?!

@drgoddess I hate that commercial for that reason. Moderately awkward
Catalina Byrd @CatalinaByrd
@drgoddess gotta keep that crossover audience/fan base comfortable;)

@drgoddess Maybe it's L'Oreal's way of squashing questions regarding the lightening of Beyonce.

It's so appalling! “@tiffani: I hate that commercial for that reason. Moderately awkward”
Dr. Goddess EXPERT #BlackWallstreet #TulsaMassacre @drgoddess
Right! “@CatalinaByrd: drgoddess gotta keep that crossover audience/fan base comfortable;)”

LOL! Okay?! “@iMDRW: drgoddess Maybe it's L'Oreal's way of squashing questions regarding the lightening of Beyonce.”

@_ReMona: Why do Black people want to make Blacks so monolithic? We are all different. Our ethnic makeup varies. Why not "claim" it?”
Dr. Goddess EXPERT #BlackWallstreet #TulsaMassacre @drgoddess
@_ReMona So, you gathered from my distaste for the L'Oreal commercial that I am promoting a Black monolith or limiting Bey in some way? :-0
Dr. Goddess EXPERT #BlackWallstreet #TulsaMassacre @drgoddess
@_ReMona Welp, That's not my point of contention AT ALL. Now, tell me what L'Oreal beauty has EVER declared their multi-ethnicity in an ad?

@drgoddess Jennifer Lopez has a similar commercial and her's says 100% Puerto Rican. Simple and direct.
Dr. Goddess EXPERT #BlackWallstreet #TulsaMassacre @drgoddess
Interesting! Is it L'Oreal? “@toicoolj: Jennifer Lopez has a similar commercial and her's says 100% Puerto Rican. Simple and direct.”
@BrownGUHL_PhD
@drgoddess something never set right with me watching that commercial especially after seeing J. (cont) http://t.co/hYNgSS2s

Thank you, dear, which one? (I have two) “@xianamoy: drgoddess Mother! I love your new piece in @EBONYMag!” #Ebony

@_ReMona Yes. And if we all are, what do you think L'Oreal is trying to do highlighting Bey's multi-ethnic makeup? Literally.
