Lil’ Kim is no stranger to having people talk about the way she looks, but the rap queen had enough of the chatter this weekend when she blasted her critics for spreading rumors that she’s been bleaching her skin.

The trouble all began when Kim appeared at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show and took a photo with his famous wife, Kim Kardashian.

After posting the photo, fans blasted Kim, claiming that she had lightened her skin. However, Kim fired back with a video post of her in the studio with Maino and a message denying the rumors.

“Uhunuh it’s a d— shame. The Lil Kim hate is a different type of hate. This video is from the exact same day of the Yeezy fashion show. I’d like to see y’all try to filter this. Videos don’t lie idiots! Some of you are just so miserable and unhappy with yourself that you have nothing else to do than to come on my page and just hate and talk about me on the blogs. It’s clear that I’m lighter in this video than the picture that Kim posted. Which is still a very gorgeous photo. I lightened up the picture because I like when the makeup pops a little more and you can see the beauty of the makeup that @tasha_mack_mua did. Kim wanted the picture to look a little darker, because that’s the way she liked it. Kim is my boo and I wanted to repost it but I saw it in a different way. Either way both pictures are completely gorgeous and are a matter of expression of preference of photography. IG is a way for people to express themselves and have fun through pictures and videos! And I love photography, on that note moving right along me and @mainohustlehard got that heat coming,” Kim captioned the video.

Kim then posted two more photos of herself with even more words for her detractors.

“By the way this is the original photo @tasha_mack_mua took in my hotel room right before the yeezy show I got it off her page and I Love it !!!” Kim captioned the photo.
