Sammy Sosa used to be a tall, dark and handsome professional baseball player. Now, the only thing he has left is the height. The Dominican former professional baseball right fielder is no longer dark-skinned, and whether he’s handsome is debatable.
The baseball legend was spotted in London looking like a white man. There was no single brown remaining on the surface of his once beautiful brown skin. His skin began getting lighter years back and in 2009 he admitted that his lightened skin was the result of using skin bleaching cream.
He said: “It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin tone.”
He added: “It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.”
Fans were shocked by Sosa’s new white skin tone after his photos surfaced and they took to Twitter to talk about it.
