But not everyone is so willing to forgive and forget.
Talk show host Montel Williams took to Twitter when he heard the news to vent his frustration and disgust with the reality star.
WTF, Vanity Fair?
As far as we're concerned, dark is lovely, but the mag doesn't appear to see it that way!
Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto appears in Vanity Fair's March issue A LOT lighter than she is in real life, and it's pissed off a lot of people!
Why did they have to give Freida the whitewash treatment like Beyonce got compliments of L'Oreal ?
We don't know because Vanity Fair has refused to answer questions about the whitewashing.
We think a natural, un-whitewashed Freida is fine as is!
