UK Newspaper Apologizes For Airbrushing Out Singer Solange Knowles’s Braids

Britain's Evening Standard newspaper has apologized to Solange Knowles for digitally altering an image of the singer on the cover of its magazine.





The Evening Standard Magazine appears to have removed a braided crown from Knowles’s head in its cover image this week. Knowles subsequently published the original image including the braids on Instagram with the caption “dtmh”, an abbreviation of Don’t Touch My Hair, the name of a song on her latest album.






The magazine article featured the singer talking about her experiences spending time at her mother's salon as a child. She also discussed braiding's importance to her and praised it as "its own art form."


The magazine said in a statement Saturday that the photo was altered for "layout purposes" but it was sorry for the offense caused. The statement said: "Plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange."
