Meagan shared in part; “It broke my heart to think that there’s little girls seeing this commentary and thinking it’s true. It broke my heart that in a season when you have young Black men and women being murdered everywhere that someone would think for one second that I don’t love my Black skin. That bothered me.”
Meagan explained that the rumours started after she started using products to remove a dog bite scar from her leg. After being happy with the results she went on to use the practitioner’s anti-ageing products which she says she liked. She shared in part; “And I used her anti-aging products and they were phenomenal. So I was like, ‘Oh, she’s the truth.’ And after I used her anti-aging product, I did find out that she was unlicensed. But I didn’t think it was a big deal because I’d already used her products and I felt good about it.”
She continued; “Then, when she said let me fix the sun damage. I was like, ‘Well, now I trust her. It’s fine.’ And I start using it—and someone asked me today—‘If it was just your forehead, then why your whole face?’ Because she said it everything needed to be even so just use it, wash with it. Your whole face. And as I saw myself getting lighter, I started freaking out and I said, ‘What’s going on?’ And she said, ‘Oh no, no. It’s just going to lift the damage first and then everything will come back.’ And I said, ‘Oh ok, cool.’ And I saw myself getting lighter. And I was like, ‘What is happening?!’ And she was like, ‘Oh, don’t worry your color will come back.’ And I said, ‘But And I said, ‘But when is it going to come back?’ She said, ‘It’ll come back soon I promise.’”
She further explained that while going through this privately, she faced public scrutiny and couldn’t defend herself. She said in part; “Yeah it got under my skin a little bit. But what I realized is while I was in it, I couldn’t defend myself because I looked crazy and I had to just sit with it and just be okay with some people are going to think what they’re going to think. And what I realize was like my prayer was after I had gotten married and dealt with a lot of the church folk thing, my prayer for the last couple years was, ‘Lord, deliver me from caring about what other people think about me.’ And I know in the Bible it says if you need to correct something, you should but if you don’t need to, let it be.”
