This is just plain sad! In 2009 former Chicago Cub slugger Sammy Sosa appeared at an awards show appearing to be a lighter complexion then he was just a few months before.
Before taking a seat at the desk on a Spanish network show, Sosa revealed that the skin pigmentation altering was not because of steroids. Sosa revealed that hew was using a bleach cream, stating: “It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some,” Sosa said on Univision’s “Primer Impacto” program. “It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.
Since that appearance Sosa has managed to stay out of the public light for the past few years, but now he has resurfaced and the internet is showing no mercy.
