Lil’ Kim is no stranger to criticism and has previously been unfairly bullied for her appearance and called out for photo-shopping her images, but she has now dramatically altered her look.
The rapper posted a selfie on Instagram Sunday where she sported bleach blond hair and a lighter complexion (near white).

Making no comment about her change of appearance, she captioned the post with:
“Miami Heat!!!,” along with a number of fire emojis.
However, her fans do have a lot to say about the new look and have expressed how upset they are that she didn’t realize how beautiful she was in her earlier years.
Many took to social media to comment on her appearance.
“I really adore you but Boo u need to be happy with yourself y [sic] change your skin color.. u not happy being black,” a user asked.
“You destroyed you natural beauty Black Is Beautiful…you made yourself to a doll. shame you didn’t love yourself enough but I won’t judge just pray for you,” wrote another user.
“She really losing it it’s sad that you have to become a white person to love yourself #lovemydarkskin,” wrote another user.
Lil’ Kim has not spoken out about her transformation and whether it’s permanent, but there are some people who have come to her defense and are encouraging others to do the same.
“A big change from the old Lil Kim but gorgeous either way,” a user wrote.
“You’ll always be the OG Queen that taught me a girl could run with the boys and get money. Life is short baby, do you!” wrote another.
“I hope u don’t read ur comments n if u do I hope they dont hurt your feelings people are soooo mean! Your a bomb ass artist and a very sweet personality and u can dress ur mf ass off I would lovvvve to play n ur closest….” wrote another user.
This isn’t the first time the 41-year-old rapper has come under attack for her ever-changing looks.
The “Queen Bee” singer had been rumored to have undergone plastic surgery in March 2012 where she seemed to have a lighter skin tone and a smaller nose.
