Beyoncé’s mother has hit back at those who suggested the star lightened her skin for the premiere of her Renaissance film.

The singer went for a platinum blonde hair look and wore a silver dress at the red-carpet event on Saturday.

Some criticised Beyoncé on social media for changing her appearance and said she “looks so white”.

In a long Instagram post, Tina Knowles defended her daughter and said the comments were racist.

She also said people accusing Beyoncé of lightening her skin were “stupid”, “ignorant” and “self-hating”.

She does a film, called the Renaissance, where the whole theme is silver with silver hair, a silver carpet, and suggested silver attire and you bozos decide that she’s trying to be a white woman and is bleaching her skin?” she wrote.

Tina’s comments were posted alongside a video montage of Beyoncé – including a photo from the premiere – over the top of her song Brown Skin Girl.
