Cameroonian pop star Dencia has once again taken to her social media accounts to blast Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o.
Following the announcement that Nyongo would become the new face of Lancome, Dencia took to Twitter to share her critique of the Hollywood star’s historic accomplishment. In the tweet that has since been removed from her account, Denica wrote:
She continued her rant on her Facebook page, sparking a backlash from fans and supporters of Nyonng’o.
This isn’t Dencia’s first jab at Nyongo. On March 1, she took to her Twitter account to express her distaste for the stirring speech Nyong’o gave at the 214 Essence Black Women in Hollywood event on Feb. 27.
In her speech, the actress shared her thoughts on beauty and race. Nyong’o also read a portion of a letter she received from a dark-skinned girl who said she was inspired by Nyong’o to love her skin tone and not buy Whitenicious skin bleaching cream to lighten it. Nyong’o told the crowd the letter reminded her of “a time when I too felt unbeautiful” and how witnessing the monumental success of supermodel Alek Wek helped her finally see the beauty of her skin tone.
Following Nyong'o’s speech, the misguided singer posted a tweet claiming that the Oscar winner had attempted to call her out. Dencia followed that message with an equally vile and grammatically garbled post.
“And oh while u claim she isn’t thinking of me, I’m on Her brain 4 her 2 mention me in a speech she shld have thanked u stupid fools.” she tweeted. “& oh @Lupita_Nyongo cln’t talk abt the bleaching creams white people (Companies) make cuz the white man pays her,they own her!!”
