Brielle Biermann accused of “blackfishing” her skin

Brielle Biermann didn’t appreciate the backlash. As per AceShowBiz, she still defends the photo. It all started when one follower wrote, “You know she posted this to show how dark she was lol.”
The Bravo personality fired back, “I actually was only going to keep it up until we sold out of our bikini 😊 never did anything wrong. I can’t help how tan I get from laying out sun up to sun down at the beach everyday!”
But fans aren’t buying it. Brielle doesn’t appear as dark in her other beach photos. One fan wrote, “Oh so what you’re trying to say is, you’ve ALWAYS been dark? Sis…”
