You may remember Sammy Sosa as a brown-skinned Dominican brother, but now, that has all changed. A photo of Sammy and his wife, Sonia, at her Wild West-themed birthday party began floating around Sunday night, and social media was shocked by his dramatic transformation.
Sammy first made a public appearance looking a bit lighter in 2009, explaining that he was using a skin bleaching cream to soften his skin. “It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin tone,” Sosa told Univision’s Primer Impacto show. “It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.”
Needless to say, Twitter had a lot to say about this one.
