Cameroonian pop star Dencia apparently wasn’t too fond of Lupita Nyong’o giving a fan advice against bleaching their skin.  During the recent Essence Black Women In Hollywood Awards, Nyong’o’s speech included an anecdote about how she learned to be proud of her dark and that she encouraged a young fan to do the same.

Dencia definitely didn’t agree with those sentiments and went on a Twitter rant, claiming Nyong’o is “owned” by white companies.

“Every year the Oscars use 1 black scape goat 2 fool blacks 2 support them,this is ur year,next year another black person get over urselves,” one tweet read.

“& oh @Lupita_Nyongo cln’t talk abt the bleaching creams white people (Companies) make cuz the white man pays her,they own her!!,” she tweeted. “And oh while u claim she isn’t thinking of me, I’m on Her brain 4 her 2 mention me in a speech she shld have thanked u stupid fools.”

Dencia then went on the claim she wasn’t losing money over her tweets, because no one pays her.

“I don’t have a record deal or pple who pay me i pay every1 who works 4 me so I can tweet how I feel unlike most celebs n my money still here,” another tweet read.

Of course Nyong’o didn’t respond to the tweet tirade, you know, she was too busy winning all of the awards.

    That Dencia is an unbelievable fool. If the use of carcinogenic skin bleaching cream is not a testimony to the success that whites have had getting us to hate ourselves, then I do not know what is. Nnong’o is the absolute epitome of Afrikan beauty with her natural skin and hair. She has the strength to be what most of us fear to be. Dencia is representative of our weakness, and her ranting is reflective of her ignorance. If she had ranted in good English, with correct spelling, and an intelligent argument, perhaps she would not appear so much a fool, but a fool nonetheless. It is too bad that she increasingly represents the mindset of the contemporary Afrikan woman. We appear to be going to hell in a handbasket. Too bad.
