Fans were shocked to see Pinkydoll was dark-skinned when she attended The 2023 Streamy Awards in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, Aug. 27.
Now she claims she isn’t trying to trick her Caucasian and Asian fans into thinking she isn’t Black.
TMZ’s camera man spoke with Pinkydoll at LAX on Tuesday. She offered the most lame excuse for her skin tone discrepancy.
Pinkydoll told the camera man she’s proud of her melanin skin — but she claims she gets “a little darker” when she’s in the sun.
“You know, it’s life. What can I do? And I love to be a Black woman,” she said.
Her “sun” excuse is insulting to Black people. She could’ve at least claimed she was in costume as an NPC gaming character.
As for copycats stealing her NPC style, she said, “I love it. Do what you gotta do. I’m happy for you.”
Fans accuse Pinkydoll of using a filter called “Liteskin face” to trick her followers into believing she’s light-skinned.
Pinkydoll once told her fans that her name refers to her skin color, which she described as “lite-skinned.”
