“Good, because that does not promote killing. It does not promote racism. Stop making this out of context when its not the agenda. Your word doesn’t matter here. What matters is human life and equality and this is what I am here for. A face wash is killing no one”
Despite her satisfying answer on social media, some people are still saying that promoting whitening creams can only promote stereotypical thinking among people.
