This is disturbing on so many levels…
Earlier this month, German glamour model Martina Big posted a video on Facebook of herself (below) in Los Angeles where she proclaims:
“Last time I visited this with blonde hair and white skin – and now I’m a black woman with African hair.”
As documented on social media, she has drastically changed her appearance in order to appear darker.
The ex-air hostess claims her “transformation” — which includes having tanning injections and using a 50-tube sunbed — occurred seven months ago.
As seen on Instagram, the change is quite drastic:
Last month, she met “with an African hairdresser” and “got a hair extension with curly, African hair.” Her next step is to “have consultations for the butt enlargement” to match her size 32S breasts. Reportedly, Martina has spent $58,000 on plastic surgery since 2012.
Not surprisingly, Big’s transformation has received plenty of criticism. Jabeer Butt of the Race Equality Foundation told The Sun:
“It’s a very sad and disappointing situation really if people assume it’s just skin colour that makes you black… She has a very limited understanding of what it means to be black or an ethnic minority today, and the challenges faced… She has a very stilted understanding of what it means to be black – you have to worry about her and the people she surrounds herself with her… Her story distracts from the problems black people are truly facing today.”
We live in a crazy world…
