A makeup artist accused of & # 39; blackface & # 39; because of her extreme color, it has hit critics – she claimed she & # 39; never wanted to hurt or offend anyone & # 39; and claims that she is now too scared to sunbathe.
Chloe Wilson, from Newcastle, has been accused of & # 39; black-up & # 39; by some of its 296,000 Instagram followers.
Filled with photos of her bronzed gaze, Miss Wilson's social media account has been littered with comments that slam her appearance in recent days.
An unsatisfied social media user wrote: & # 39; Are you perhaps sticking to your original skin color? I get a bit of a tan, but look like a whole different race. & # 39;

Another said: & # 39; How often do black people have to tell you to stop black face? & # 39;
& # 39; Yes, you have entered a whole new race & # 39 ;, an additional internet user repeated.
Miss Wilson was quick to retaliate the messages and recorded her Twitter account to defend her sunbed habits.
& # 39; Oh no, I am a racist because I tanned the tanning bed & # 39 ;, she wrote. & # 39; I have just bought three bottles of factor 50, now I am afraid of tanning during my vacation. I will not do this again. & # 39;

She continued: & # 39; I am also sorry that I sucked on a sunbed that caused offense, it was never intended. & # 39;
The make-up artist ended with her comments with: & # 39; May I also just add, to all those people who say what I do is cruel, mean, offensive … you literally put me in tweets.
& # 39; I have never wanted to harm or insult anyone, but you have deliberately insulted me cruelly and cruelly. Says more about you. & # 39;
Not everyone agreed with Miss Wilson's critics, and the makeup artist reassured she had nothing to apologize for.

ARE SUNBIDS SAFE?
Tanning beds spread UV light that increases the risk of people developing skin cancer.
Many sunbeds emit larger doses of UV radiation than the tropical sun in the afternoon.
Tans protect the body against the harmful effects of sun rays.
Tanning a tanning bed is no safer than a tanning bed and can be even more dangerous if:
- UV rays are stronger
- People use them longer
- People use them often
- Users have fair skin or hair
Previous studies suggest that people who are often exposed to UV rays before 25 are more likely to develop skin cancer later in life.
Signs of skin damage are not always clear for up to 20 years, but usually start with a mole that has changed color or appearance, which can sand or bleed later.
UV rays can also damage people's eyes, which can lead to irritation, conjunctivitis or cataract.

One person said: & # 39; I want to know why tanning means you have to keep HATE in your heart for every group of people.
& # 39; That is what the terms racist / sexist / __ phobic means. People forget that it's really about hatred.
& # 39; Doubt, because you hate people who are darker than you and you intend to mock their culture. & # 39;
Chloe has been contacted for comment.
Blackface has an ugly history that has been used for centuries to perpetuate racial stereotypes and ridiculous slaves for the entertainment of white people.
It remains a very controversial topic, both in the US and in the UK.
Earlier this year, a student who turned brown and is sometimes mistaken for another breed argued that she was & # 39; not racist & # 39; is – she just likes to become & # 39; tan & # 39 ;.
Hannah Tittensor, 22, from Belfast, discovered her love to get bronzed after developing a great color during her vacation in Turkey in 2015.
& # 39; Some people have accused me of trying to look like a black woman, & # 39; Hannah explained.
& # 39; I'm not trying to do that at all, I just love the way my skin looks healthy and glows with a tan. Some girls can't live without getting their nails or haircut and for me it's tanning. & # 39;
& # 39; Everyone does it. It has become a trend in the city. I use the tanning bed for about fifteen minutes, three times a week, & Hannah said.
