Radio and television personality Thando Thabethe who is gracing the November issue of the South African Cosmopolitan sizzles in a black leotard and a fanny pack but her social media followers seem upset that star appears darker than normal. 

Thabooty, as she is fondly known to her fans, is light-skinned but in the summer issue of the publication, the "Housekeepers" star’s picture seems to have been underexposed, and it seems the photo editor tried to lighten it her skin tone but ended up with the opposite effect. 

“I wish they didn't make you look so dark, you're such a beautiful natural yellow bunny,” wrote one Instagram user.

“At first glance I could have sworn it was Naomi Campbell,” added another user.

Another follower also criticised the cover, with a question to the publication “ Did they have to make you darker though? You are beautiful".

Prior to Thando's Cosmo cover reveal, the 5FM presenter nearly broke the internet when the posted a photograph of herself rocking a denim jacket, exposing her entire midriff, with only her nipples covered.

At the time of writing, the post had over 45 thousand views.
