Twitter Trolls Photoshopped Rihanna And Beyonce To Look White

We're in 2017, y'all. Why is this a thing?

Sometimes the internet is responsible for wonderful, hilarious things, like the Zola story and #DuragHistoryWeek. Other times, we have the internet to blame for things that shouldn't even exist, like the Cash Me Ousside Girl's rap career and these offensive AF photos of Rihanna and Beyonce photoshopped to look like white women.

The photos show Rihanna and Beyonce with both their skin and eyes digitially lightened, Distractify reports. The pics, which first started getting attention in July but recently began resurfacing online, are often posted with captions arguing that both women would look beautiful if only they were white.

"Say what you want but Beyonce would look prettier if she was born white," read one particularly disturbing caption. (That Twitter user's account was later suspended. Life comes at you fast.)

When the photos first started making the rounds online earlier this summer, fans went in on the people posting the pics, and Rihanna reportedly even blocked one of the Twitter users who posted a gallery of whitewashed photos.

Never has a public dragging been more justified. Check it out below, and hopefully your faith in humanity will be restored.
