Actress Lupita Nyong ’ o called out Grazia magazine on Twitter last night for Photoshopping her natural hair to fit what she says are “more Eurocentric” beauty ideals.

Thursday evening, actress Lupita Nyong ’ o took to her Instagram to speak out against what she says are unauthorized changes to her Grazia U.K. November cover photo. The Oscar winner said that she was “disappointed” that her hair was edited to “fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beauty looked like.”

"As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too," Nyong'o captioned the post.

"Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture," she concluded.

Victoria Beckham Criticised For Casting Just Five Non-White Models At New York Fashion Week Show

  Victoria Beckham Criticised For Casting Just Five Non-White Models At New York Fashion Week Show Victoria Beckham was named as one of three fashion designers with the least racially diverse shows at New York Fashion Week. The Fashion Spot’s diversity report has shown that the Spring 2018 shows were the most racially diverse in recent history, with non-white models making up 36.9% of castings.However three brands were called out for bringing down this percentage: Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen’s brand The Row, New York-based label A Détacher and the UK’s Victoria Beckham.

Actress Lupita Nyong ’ o wrote on Instagram that she was disappointed that Grazia UK “edited out and smoothed my hair .” Just last month, Solange Knowles had her hair Photoshopped out by the London Evening Standard magazine.

Lupita Nyong ' o slams Eurocentric Photoshopping of her hair on magazine cover. But why does this keep happening though Grazia UK featured Nyong ' o on its cover but edited out her kinky curls entirely — and she is NOT ok with that.

Nyong'o added the hashtag #dtmh (don't touch my hair) to drive the point home. In an industry where Black women are already underrepresented, it's problematic to photoshop images of women like Nyong'o who, as she says, want children to know that they're beautiful as they are. Furthermore, it was straight-up disrespectful to make such a change without consulting Nyong'o and allowing her to explain exactly why the photoshopping is a racial issue.

This isn't the first time a magazine has come under fire for photoshopping Nyong'o. As noted by People, a 2014 Vanity Fair cover generated controversy online after people pointed out that it appeared her skin had been lightened.
