Blac Chyna is under attack on social media

This week, the American model announced on Instagram that she'd be in Lagos, Nigeria on November 25 to launch her face whitening cream named Whitenicious.

This will be in partnership with Whitenicious, a controversial whitening product brand owned by Cameroonian singer Dencia, and Bobrisky, popular Nigerian male barbie.

Why so hypocritical?

Regardless of the blacklash, Blac Chyna will still be in Lagos this Sunday to launch her cream. Emotions aside, it is just business.

Today, all over the world, is Black Friday. A day when shoppers enjoy ridiculous price slashes on their favourite products.
