Solange Calls Out @EveningStandard: “Don’t Touch My Hair”

by Yah Yah

Solange Knowles called out the London Evening Standard for placing a digitally altered photograph of her on their recent issue. On the cover, Solange’s braided crown was removed, the original, unaltered picture was published to her Instagram page along with the caption “dtmh”, “Don’t Touch My Hair.”

You can view the edited pic below.

It could all be too little, too late as even the journalist who interviewed Knowles for the cover story has disowned the article in a series of tweets.

The Evening Standard Magazine issued an apology for the photoshop job.

“We were delighted to have the chance to interview the wonderful Solange Knowles and photograph her for this week’s edition of ES magazine. It is therefore a matter of great regret that the finished cover artwork of the magazine caused concern and offence. The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange.”

What are your thought on the situation? Is this apology enough?
