Fake tan-addicted teenager accused of pretending to be black online
quote:

A sunbed-obsessed UK teen has been accused of “blackfishing” — masquerading as a black person — after tanning so much that her skin became dark bronze.

“I just like having a tan,” said Taylor Humphrey, 18, who reportedly spends up to 20 minutes every day in her personal tanning bed, Caters News Agency reported.


quote:

The tan-loving teen, who describes herself as “over the top” and “very glamorous,” said she started “doing eight minutes at a time and built it up over a few months” until she was spending twice that long in her home salon, she told Caters. However, Humphrey said she makes sure not to exceed “the maximum recommended amount” — 20 minutes — for sunning sessions.


quote:

Apparently, however, not everyone was so thrilled with Humphrey’s fanatical tanning regimen. The teen told Caters that her coppery countenance sparked a backlash online, with critics accusing the teen of trying to resemble someone of a different race.

That hair needs to be part of the discussion of her pathology.

Tanning can’t change bone structure

The same critics who think it’s fine to literally wear other people’s hair?

They have ZERO logical consistency and should be laughed out the room.

Has she tried to pass herself off as black? No? Then critics need to STFU…

Side note: Brits have a strange obsession with tanning, it's a thing about letting everyone know you've gone on "holiday"...

You can’t accuse someone who just tans as trying to be black.

That’s stupid. So what’s next, cancel tanning?
