Beyonce has sent a defiant message to people online accusing her of 'skin-lightening' after she revealed a dramatic makeover to her millions of fans.
The singer is much-loved by so many across the globe but was met by online trolls this week as she debuted her new look.
Many flocked to social media sites to slam the 42-year-old as she rocked a rather striking platinum blonde wig during the Renaissance concert film premiere on Saturday (24 November).
Some of the comments accused Beyonce of copying Kim Kardashian, which was among many cruel comments blasted at the singer in the past week.
Well, Beyonce has hit back at all them haters as she took to Instagram with a defiant message.
Instead of writing a message to the online trolls, Beyonce shared a snap of herself and Jay-Z throwing up peace signs to her haters.
And it's safe to say that Beyonce fans loved the defiant message, with one penning: "We know Black is Black.. congrats on the movie!!!"
While another added: "BEYONCÉ WE LOVE THE PLATINUM ON YOU. YOU PULL OFF ANYTHING. FORGET THE MEDIA , YOU ARE THE QUEEN."
At the premiere of her concert movie, Beyonce was seen wearing a sparkling silver gown designed by Donatella Versace.
As cruel comments began to flood in for the singer, her mom, Tina Knowles, hit back at the critics.
After social media users noted her skin looked too 'white', Tina posted a lengthy post to her Instagram, calling out people’s 'ignorance and racism'.
“Came across this today and decided to post it after seeing all of the stupid ignorant self, hating racist statements about her, lightening her skin, and wearing platinum hair wanting to be white,” Tina began.
The mother added the legendary singer wore a platinum blonde wig to the premiere as the film’s theme is ‘silver’.
“She does a film, called the Renaissance, where the whole theme is silver with silver hair, a silver carpet, and suggested silver attire and you bozos decide that she's trying to be a white woman and is bleaching her skin? .. How sad is it that some of her own people continue the stupid narrative with hate and jealousy,” she continued.
The mother noted how one white woman had reached out to Beyonce’s hairstylist for a statement regarding Beyonce’s appearance, which Tina admitted ‘boiled her blood’.
“Well that made, my blood boil, that this white woman felt so entitled to discuss her blackness,” she said.
“Every time she does something that she works her a** off for and is a statement of her work ethic , talent and resilience. Here you sad little haters come out the woodwork. Jealousy and racism , sexism , double standards , you perpetuate those things . Instead of celebrating a sister or just ignoring if you don't like her."
