Amelia Hamlin came under fire for her latest Instagram post. Lisa Rinna’s transformed herself. The new photos raised concern among fans. Some argue that she’s “blackfishing” people. But she claims that she just tans “really easily.”
This comes after Amelia jetted off to Miami with new beau Scott Disick. In the meantime, she shared new photos of herself super-bronzed self on Instagram. She even disabled the comments. On Thursday, February 25, the model took to Instagram to post the new photos.
The photos feature her wearing black leather pants and a rust-colored top that features cutouts on the chest. Amelia wore her long brown hair in a braid that went past her shoulders. However, fans noticed that she wore a generous amount of bronzer. Check out the photos below.
Amelia Hamlin posts questionable photos
Amelia Hamlin looked barely unrecognizable in the carousel of photos. She also put on a busy display. The RHOBH star captioned the photos: “whiplash got me like…..” In the post, Amelia credited makeup artist Hailey Hoff and Azlee jewelry for her bold new look. Regardless of the backlash, the post received over 31,000 likes.
Hailey shared a photo of Amelia on her Instagram feed. She called the young model: “fierce as fck.” Some users argued with that comment. One wrote: “She should’ve posted this version of the look showing her ‘TAN,’ her post is edited beyond recognition.” Another said that Amelia looks like Khloe Kardashian. But most of the comments on that post were positive.
Lisa Rinna’s daughter denies she’s “blackfishing”
Though she disabled comments on that post, Amelia Hamlin still received backlash. Some accused her of “blackfishing,” which refers to the use of Photoshop or makeup to make the skin appear darker or Black. Shortly thereafter, she took to her Instagram Stories to post a statement.
“I’m receiving a lot of comments in regards to my latest photo,” Amelia wrote in her Instagram Story. “I am being told that I am ‘black fishing’ – thank you all for educating me on this topic.”
But she still denied the claims. She blamed her darker tone on her “vacation in the sun.” Amelia says that due to her “Italian heritage” that she can “tan very easily.” She denies the claims that she used any self-tanner. Nor, did she intentionally try to make herself look darker. The Instagram influencer says she “had a lot of fun creating this look with no malice intention or offense.”
Went on Miami vacation with Scott Disick and his kids
Amelia Hamlin went on vacation with Scott Disick. The couple was spotted together in Miami earlier this month with his three children, Mason, 11, Penelope, 8, and Reign, 6. Scott also debuted his new spikey pink hair. The entire crew got together with friends while dining on sweet treats, an insider told ET Online.
Scott and Amelia spent a lot of time together in Miami. They even spent Valentine’s Day just after becoming Instagram official. However, another insider told the outlet that the duo is keeping things casual and are “still not super serious.” That’s interesting considering Scott introduced the 19-year-old to his children.
