Erika Jayne changes caption after Lisa Rinna is accused of blackfishing
Erika Jayne changed her tune caption.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star had her co-star Lisa Rinna’s back after posting a photo of them on Instagram that led fans to accuse Rinna of blackfishing.
In the image, Jayne, 50, and Rinna, 58, were all dolled up in ’70s disco attire. The singer originally made the caption, “Donna and Jerry ✨” — referring to Rinna as Donna Summer and herself as Jerry Hall — but changed it to, “Cher and Jerry ✨” after fans began to comment on the actress’ tanner-than-usual appearance.
“If that is Donna Summers [sic]…..Rinna be hitting up the black face!” one user commented under the post.
“Lisa Rina [sic] stay problematic #blackfishing,” another chimed in.
“Is Lisa rinna black now lol,” a third netizen wrote.
Blackfishing is a modern term used to describe someone who pretends to be black by changing their appearance using makeup, editing or even surgery.
However, many fans were quick to defend Rinna, saying she could’ve gotten a spray tan gone wrong or that Jayne picked an overly saturated filter.
“All that money and she got an orange spray tan,” one follower wrote.
“Erika put an orange/dark filter over Rinna. If you look at Lisa’s stories, she posts a pic of herself without the strange filter and she has her natural skin. Sick of the bad photo shop choices these women make. So unnecessary!!” another person noted.
Rinna also posted a solo shot of her glam look to her Instagram feed, where her skin tone appears lighter.
“We call her Cher ✨,” she wrote in the caption.
Rinna’s rep had no comment when Page Six reached out.
The “RHOBH” ladies seemed to party all night long as they celebrated Rinna Beauty’s Larger Than Life collection launch on Thursday night. Almost every cast member posted multiple Instagram Stories and photos from the event.
“Ladies are serving it ! Me not so much lol #amateurface#rhobh,” newbie Diana Jenkins jokingly captioned a group photo booth snap.
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 12 is currently filming.
