What shocked netizens was that Chyna planned to travel to Nigeria to promote her ‘Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream’. The internet was aghast at her decision and many called her out for being insensitive and using her platform for the wrong reasons.
Kim Kardashian came to Nigeria to co-host a show , Naomi Campbell came for a fashion event, but Blac Chyna is coming to sell bleaching cream 😂

Blac Chyna is taking advantage of the insecurities of colourism and self hate. She is disgusting. Skin whitening cream is horrible. This should not be advertised and she is choosing Africa for a reason. Shameful.

Blac Chyna knows bleaching creams are banned for use in countries like U.K. and USA. But Blac Chyna doesn’t care about you.
They ban it in their countries. But make it and sell it to you. Because your life is totally worthless to them.
Don’t be a fool.

But Chyna is used to all the backlash and she went ahead with the promotional trip. The highlight of the trip seems to be when she had an altercation with someone in a parking lot.
