Not so friendly welcome! Earlier this week, model Blac Chyna inked a deal to be the new face of a skin bleaching cream called Whitenicious, and she announced that she would be traveling to Lagos, Nigeria for a big launch party for her Whitenicious X Blac Chyna product line. But it looks like all of the backlash from the deal that she got here in America followed overseas because Chyna was spotted fighting almost as soon as she landed in Nigeria.
According to video footage obtained by The Shade Room, Chyna, 30, can be seen pushing another woman as she tries to exit a black SUV. The woman then pushed Chyna against the car before pushing her back into the back seat. In the clip, a witness could be heard asking “What happened?” and another witness responded, “She’s fighting!”
It’s unclear why or how the fight started, but it definitely seems like Chyna was not welcome in Nigeria because of her controversial business deal. Just hours before the footage surfaced, Chy took to her Instagram page to announce more details about the Whitenicious product line.
“@LashedCosmetics is pleased to announce our newest global partnership with @Whitenicious. Dencia and I have combined over 10 years experience in the cosmetics industry and partnering with a reputable skincare line to cater to all skin types,” the caption read. “@LashedCosmetics and @Whitenicious were a perfect match to market our products in unison to reach a wider worldwide demographics. Both companies have a significant amount of international customers and the vision that they mutually share. Our philanthropic collaboration is to encourage and empower women. Thank you and stay tuned for all of our endeavors.”
But the issue that fans have is that the Whitenicious X Blac Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening cream product is that it is marketed as a “skin lightening” cream. The fact that Chyna is selling a lightening cream to women with darker skin tones further adds to colorism in the black community, where lighter skin tones are considered more favorable than darker tones.
