“Am I wrong or she is looking so white in this picture,” wrote one. “Please don’t tell me you are getting ready of your melanin, you are so beautiful with your natural color.”

Zoe, of course, shut it down nicer than we might have. “Jesus. no girl,” she commented on the post. “This is what happens to some of us mixed up mixed kids when we can’t go outside lol.”

So, relax folks. Stand outside or open a window and get some fresh air so we can get back to real hair and beauty news.
