Sammy Admits He Bleaches His Skin!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueZportz


We knew something was going on!

After those creeptastic pictures of Sammy Sosa hit the web everyone's been wondering what the fuck is going on with his face.

On Wednesday the former Cubs player finally explained the reason behind his whiter appearance saying: "It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some."

Some!? We think it's done a little bit more than some! Try a whole lot!

Sosa's also using the bleaching cream as a moisturizer and is reportedly in talks to market it.

After seeing these pictures, we think it may be a tough sale to hawk it as just a moisturizer!

    michael jackson?

  4. 4

    Oh my….! He look SCARY!!!

  5. 5

    This is a shame. Women are the ones that bleach their skin to appear lighter. Men doing it is bizarre and to me not a man.

  6. 6

    At first I was a little shocked because it was so drastic. Still, I don't see how his choice is much different from tanning nowadays. Neither the tanners nor the bleachers ever look natural when they overdo it, though! And his green contacts are a bit much.

  7. 7

    See this is why I'm not a Cubs fan…thought thats also because I'm a White Sox fan :)

  8. 8

    How sad that Sammy can't be happy with the way he was. He looked a lot better before he bleached his skin.

  9. 9

    Who cares! White people get tans ALL the time! I think he looks a LOT better!

  10. 10

    Re: la poopsiekins – That IS his natural eye color!

  12. 12

    He looks like a cartoon.

  13. 13

    Re: LauraLou – I don't think that's his natural eye color. I'm looking at pictures of him right now and his eyes are dark brown, not green. And Michael Jackson had vitiligo, he wasn't bleaching himself. I don't know why Sammy would bleach himself, he looked good just the way he was.

  14. 14

    He looks sickly when bleached.
    Not to mention much older and his skin is clearly damaged.

    He looked much healthier and more attractive as a dark skinned man. Also I'm not sure if his eyes are real green, but they also looked prettier with the darker skin. a much better contrast.

    Chocolate Brown + Green is so much better then Freaky Tan + Green Eyes

  15. 15

    He looks terrible. Be black; be proud!

  16. 16

    He was much more attractive before.

  17. 17

    Creepy looking white man!

  18. Ne says – reply to this


    This is all because of the issue that dark skin people have problems being dark. I blame it on white people.They started all this.

  19. 19

    he doesn't love himself

  20. 20

    I thought he looked way better before…
    I mean he has African facial features……those type of facial features dont look natural with a light skin tone….but they look perfectly natural and pretty good for someone with darker skin.
    I wonder what he is thinking…..for a ball player with money you would think he would have a high confidence level…..I guess all those steroids he took did something to his brain, way of of thinking

  21. 21

    Where are all those people saying "black don't crack" now huh? Seems like most people (especially black people) don't want to be black. Whether they crack or not. Why is that?

  22. 22

    I don't know him but why did he do that?

    Is he ashamed of being black?….and he doesn't look white… just lighter!

  23. 23

    WOW THIS IS SICK AND SAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. 24

    does he smear it over his entire body? inquiring minds want to know…

  25. Mema says – reply to this


    esta bien loco! whats wrong with being negro! he looks awful, and it pretty embarassing to say that he is dominican. some people dont know it what to waste there money!

  26. 26

    Obviously he wants to be white. He can try, put on his green contact lenses, bleach his skin, but still look like a freaky monster with black African features. White people are laughing… everybody wants to be like us!

  27. 27

    Why is it when white people get a tan they look good but when black people try to become lighter they look bad?

  30. 30

    So its HUGE when Michael Jackson's skin lightens because of something he can't control (vitiligo) but its no big deal when someone elses actually bleaches their skin. If Michael ever bleached his skin, it was to even out his skin tone due to the blotchy spots the vitiligo caused.

  31. 31

    and yes i'm trolling

  32. 32

    Now if we just tear out his tounge he's ready for Midnight Meat Train 2

  33. 33

    o.k., the skin is weird. But isn't he also wearing contact lenses that are a weird hazel color too?

  34. 34

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – Dumb ass, Sammy Sosa is not black he is hispanic. Get your facts straight before make dumb ass/ignorant comments. Black people love being black!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Michael Jackson had a skin disease other than him what other black person do you know that lighten his/her skin? NONE!!! On the other hand, you need to ask yourself why do white people get a tan and want to look dark like black people.

  35. 35

    I want to try bleaching cream on my asshole.

  36. 36

    Sammy Sosa is DOMINICAN idiots!!!!!

  37. 37

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – you're an idiot. you have no basis for that statement. unless you know MOST black people in the world, which you don't. anyways, this man looks crazy.

  38. 38

    OMFG hes whitewashed seriously why put down your race by doing that?

  39. epic says – reply to this


    can anybody please explain to me what the indigrents of this cream are? uranium? kryptonite? what? don't tell me that skin bleaches from naturally black! to pale white because of a "cream". DAMN!

  40. 40

    Re: SweetNSour22 – It was just a question…geez. I'm asking b/c I don't know. I also don't understand why the moment a black man acheives even a modicum of success he goes out and gets himself a white girlfriend/wife. Why is that?

  41. 41

    And here I thought things could get no worse. Colonialist mentality is still going strong, hope that cream never get’s sold! Traitor!

  42. 42

    Que vagabunderia, Sammy! You do not look good. You look like one of the characters on "Night of the Living Dead". Stop using that cream, tigre…

  43. 43

    Quite frankly, I never saw the uproar over things like this. I don't see a difference in lightening your skin as going tanning all the time, or getting your nose shaved, your boobs enhanced - whatever you do to change natural features. You were born with your skin color as much as your nose/boob/butt/chest/arm size - why are people freaking out over him bleaching as if it's so much more wrong than tucks, nips, injections, shavings, suckings, lasers, etc.?

  44. 44

    Re: Maria StarRe: SweetNSour22 – Not so fast calling people idiots. You do realize that Dominicans are made up of VARIOUS cultures, one of which is African? I'm sure you realize that as you do not seem like an "idiot". :D Looking at Mr. Sosa, I can assure you that he has African heritage in him.
    So Sammy Sosa is NOT Hispanic then either :D
    It actually makes a lot of sense that he is Dominican. If you read up about the history of Domincans they are EXTREMELY ASHAMED of having African heritage. They prefer to focus on their European heritage. Just google it and you will see.
    My parents once visited the Domincan. My mom is very light skinned and my dad is very tanned. A local Dominican man came up to them and touched my mom's skin with reverence. He said that she was "so lucky" and that white skin signified "money". He pointed to my dad's skin and shook his head LOL!!
    Notice that Mr. Sosa's wife is WHITE. Again, I'm just pointing out a few facts that you can easily google.
    I know several black men who told me they prefer white women and that all their GFs have been white, or at least "of a lighter persuasion". Black people don't seem to like being black. Why is that?

  45. 45

    What a complete DOUBLE STANDARD!!!!! Michael Jackson developed a SKIN DEASE (his autopsy confirmed it)-which is something he can't control/fix or change, and everyone and their mother criticized him for basically suffering from a dease, and yet Sammy says he PURPOSELY 'bleached his skin' to make it lighter, and no ones reacting or treating him like the way that treated and reacted to Michael!

  46. 46

    Re: LV-Entergetic – MJ received a lot of flack that he didn't deserve. I do believe he acted inappropriately and childlike (like peeing into a cup in front of people) but I don't believe he ever molested or harmed children. I believe all the humiliation MJ suffered led to his demise and I feel empathy for what he endured and for how everyone tried to take advantage of him.
    Here's something I googled on Dominicans:
    When race is mentioned in the Dominican Republic the almost non-existent Taino culture is at the crux of the conversation, seemingly and somewhat purposely, ignoring the African influence on the country, and at the same time praising the European background of Dominicans.

  47. 47

    Creepy!!!! He looks DEAD!

  48. 48

    I think he looks much more attractive with the lighter skin.

  49. 49

    woooow thats weirdd.
    but i guess white people tan so… lol.

  50. 50

    He looks terrible but I'd buy that cream. I miss my old skin color.

  51. 51

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – Sounds to me like someone has self-esteem issues. If another race wants lighter skin it reflects back to slavery. If you had lighter skin you could pass as a white person and have more rights than someone of darker skin. But its not just black men who prefer lighter women. Hell there are several white men and women who prefer black women/men. Black is beautiful baby!! That is why white woman love them and white men love the black woman. Hell that is why everyone is getting lip injections, butt implants, and tanning so they can have the wonderful features that black women have had for years. So every race copies off of the other!

  52. 52

    He still looks black to me BLACK PEOPLE COME IN ALL SHADES also being Dominican is a nationality not race he's afro latino.

  53. 53

    Side effcts include bloat and puffy pasty face. ew. If a cream made me look like that, I would sue.

  54. 54

    WHAT IN THE WORLD?!!!!??? WHY??? Be proud to be Dominican, there is nothing wrong with it!! This just makes him look incredibly insecure.

  55. 55

    Re: imsoregistered – Hmm good question and you might have a point. This is just something new to most people; I guess it needs some time to be digested.

    It's his money and his body, who cares. As long as his wife is happy too.

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – Sorry I just have to call out this odd/racist(?) comment. You talk about black men with white women and say "Black people don't seem to like being black?" That is quite the generalization! I am white and my boyfriend is Black. And he is a black man who's PROUD to be Black and I'm sure he wouldn't choose to be white if somehow given the chance. If a Black man chooses to marry a white woman, that often simply means that the couple is able to see beyond the faux racial divides that people like you are still talking about.

  60. 60

    He is also wearing those demonic looking color contacts to further prove he does not like his skin color.

  61. 61

    Re: imsoregistered – boob jobs and facelifts are not the same as enduring slavery. Dumbass.

  62. 62

    People look better with their NATURAL skin colours.
    Ponds has ads on youtube that were shown in India and they promote skin bleaching. People cannot compare it to tanning because the commercials show that if you are white, you'll meet the perfect person and get a better job.
    I think people felt bad for Sammy when they thought it was a disease but seriously, black man suddenly white with green contacts? Does he have to bleach his whole body??

  63. 63

    Re: peaceloveandsex – Would you call a mexican a puerto rican? Some once from el salvador a mexican? HELL NO!!! They are not the same. He is not black, he is dominican. They are not the same. Yes black people do come in all shades but Sammy is not one of them. Sorry but he is a latin/hispanic.

  64. 64

    Why the fuck do people do this to themselves?

    Re: Ne – Fuck off you racist bitch.

    Re: SweetNSour22 – okay I'm from England and I'm white that's like me telling a white person Russia I'm not white GET IT!

  67. 67

    Re: tejaschica – I think that's a very idealistic way of looking at things. I think that if you walked about in a predominantly black neighborhood in the States with your proud black man in tow….I think many black women would feel terrible about it. It would probably be dangerous for you to do that.
    Re: SweetNSour22 – Um….I didn't say anything about slavery….YOU DID

  68. 68

    Re: Tony Maddox Music Well gee, I was unaware that Sosa was a slave. So if we go by your "dumbass" logic, then all white people who tan WANT to be slaves? Or all Jewish delineated people who shave their noses WANT to be Christians? Or that all black women who straighten their hair WANT to be white? Or that all white women who perm their hair WANT to be black? All your features ARE your heritage - period. What you change doesn't pass to your children. I'm German, short, stout, blonde, blue eyed - but I want to be taller and tanner, so that MUST mean I want to be an aborigine? Maybe thinner, so that must mean.. hmm.. Eritean? Oh, and I'm shifting to a MN accent, so I must be denouncing my home state and wanting to BE a Minnesotan? It has NOTHING to do with slavery in America if people want to go and change their features and EVERYTHING to do with vanity.

  69. 69

    Re: SweetNSour22 – By virtue of Sammy being Domincan, Sammy HAS BLACK HERITAGE. What don't you understand about the Dominican culture? Look it up before you spout stupidities. There is no such thing as the Dominican race you fool. By saying Sammy is Dominican you are saying he HAS BLACK HERITAGE. You are just too stupid to realize it.

  70. 70

    Re: tejaschica I suppose, obviously by many comments, you may be right. I just personally see no difference in this - or those girls that go under "Extreme Makeover" type procedures. They produce a person that is not natural to their heritage, regardless of what it is. Flat chests, angular noses - those are all genetic/heritage features. Jewish are famed for big noses, German for stocky women (and beer), Japanese for their eye shape (which I think is beautiful), other nations still for flat chests or saggy breasts, or more still for wide hips… changing any of it - it's all vanity. I'm vain, I'd love to grow a few inches, suck some fat out and shave down my nose (though I can't handle the thought of the nose). Any person who wants to change their given body, to me, isn't shying away from their heritage, but doing what they think makes them look good. Granted - there's overkill like Carrot Top and Jocelyn Wildenstein but if you change something about yourself, regardless - it's the same as someone else changing something else.

  71. 71

    The truth is….in most developing and/or poor countries….darker skinned people WANT TO BECOME WHITE. Happens in India. Happens in the Dominican. Probably happens in a host of other countries. You can deny it all you want but it's the truth. Skin "whitening" creams are all the rage there. You can stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist but it does. And the sooner people accept reality and understand it the sooner they can do something to rectify it.

  72. 72

    Re: sarainadream And in America, everyday there are ads and such for tanning products as much as there are whitening products there. The thinking is always "the grass is greener". We point out this, they'll point out that. No one, and I mean no one, is perfectly happy with every single thing about their body. And marketing knows that, so wherever they are, they'll run with the ads that'll pull in the cash. California and Florida show something like 40% more ads for Self Tanners than do states like Minnesota and North Dakota. Minnesota and Wisconsin show more ads for organic products than do Arkansas and Oklahoma. It's called targeting and it's not limited to countries, states, or even sometimes, counties.

  73. 73

    Re: SweetNSour22 Black is a color, not a nationality. People like Dave Matthews and Charlize Theron are African-American but not black. I'm American, I don't want to be called Swedish, or French, or German - even if we are both white. Egypt is in Africa - would you consider Egyptians black? No. But if they are here, they are African American too.

    Re: imsoregistered – germans are in fact quite tall, especially those who live in the north of the country.
    though i think you have a point, consider the following: suzie is unhappy because she has got a flat chest. her boyfriend left her for a girl with big breasts. so she decides to get a boob-job.
    people have reasons to get under the knife - and mostly they do it for other people.

  75. 75

    Re: imsoregistered – LMAO!!! Are you kidding me? Charlize Theron is SOUTH AFRICAN …NOT….AFRICAN-AMERICAN. LOL!! I'm sorry but that is too funny that you don't know the difference and are trying to "edumacate" people. Charlize Theron is of German and French descent.
    African-American means BLACK. Get over it.

  76. 76

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker I think YOU should do some research before you spout stupidities. Especially concerning the fact that "blacks" were not on the island until they were imported as slaves. It was Hispanic and French before any black people en masse came to the island. The original country was overrun by those from South America, but that doesn't automatically assume that not only were those people black, but that every single person on the island procreated with them, even if you assume that the French and Spanish continued procreation with them to totally envelope the island in offspring from the Tainos. There are NO facts to back up your claim. Just as another theory puts the Tainos from Colombia and NOT Africa. Not only that, but it was considered taboo to go outside your class AND race, therefore Columbus people wouldn't have procreated en masse before they killed them off either. Though I admit, Haiti is a beautiful place in it's own right…

  77. 77

    I read that that stuff is unsafe and causes cancer.

  78. 78

    The lighter skin, the fake eyecolor, not to mention he straightened his nappy hair. You don't have to be a genious to see what he's trying to do. I don't believe his skin was from cream either. What ever he is doing requires a perscription. For 2010 I see a thinner nose and blond hair.

  79. 79

    Re: imsoregistered – LOL!! This coming from someone who believes that South African Charlize Theron who is of French and German descent is actually African-American? Ha ha.
    What is it you have against black people anyway? Why is it so terrible for you to even entertain the notion that Dominicans have black heritage? Which they do, BTW. Deny it all you want, but they do. And they know it.

  80. 80

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker She became a citizen of America a few years ago. If anyone is both nationalities SHE is. God, I don't insult people a lot, but you really ARE stupid and quite delusional in your self grandiose. I'm American, period. Am I stupid because I don't announce myself as German/Scottish American because my grandparents were born there? I wasn't. I was born here. I hold nationality HERE. If I move to Paris, I'm a French-American. Do you not understand that concept or did you flunk 2nd grade? Oh I get it, because of your stupid theory, all white people are not Americans, and neither are black people. And probably since America wasn't in existence when the Native American's were here, technically, they aren't Americans either. *GASP*

  81. 81

    1. He's not black. He is DOMINICAN.

    2. He didn't bleached his skin. I saw the first interview he gave to "Primer Impacto" some news program in Univision, where he admitted using a night time cream, specifically a moisturizer and that he didn't noticed this cream was doing that to his skin.

    3. Those are contact lenses. Those aren't his real eyes color. He been putting those for years now.

    Re: epic The height for men is fairly average, but for women specifically is only 5'4. (Which I am, actually.) Though I think with the last 5 decades, the lines have muddied as travel has become second nature for many people. IIRC, the average height for the country in the 1800's was only 5'8, including men. Though, as a world - people have grown overall. And I agree with you though, people do it for others. I guess that's the essence of vanity though - you can only gain a vain trait if you know what others think of you?

  85. 85

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker It's called being respectful of other people's heritage, cultures and being RIGHT and not spouting off random stuff to make you look superior. I am not French, don't want to be called French. I'm sure the French feel the same about Americans. It's not your fairytale world and then to bully people, insult people, then play a victim card to make your point, but use stone cold facts. Which you are incapable of doing apparently.

    Re: imsoregistered – No honey, unfortunately it is you who is stupid. Charlize is Afrikaner NOT African. Do you understand the difference? Charlize is NOT AFRICAN, she is AFRIKANER which many people simply state as "South African". Which is why I brought up her descent to show that she is not African. You could say she is Afrikaner-American if you must. But what's the point? You are too dumb and too arrogant to understand. Dumb arrogant people are the worst. B/c they never learn. There is a DIFFERENCE between Afrikaner and African you dumb, ignorant American. Your stupidity and arrogance gives all Americans a bad name. Seriously.

  90. 90

    Re: imsoregistered – Here you are dumbass…from google which you are too dumb and too arrogant to even consult:
    Afrikaners or Boer are White Afrikaans speakers who have been established in Southern Africa since the 17th century. They are mainly of northwestern European descent (mostly Dutch, German and French ancestry), but their native tongue is Afrikaans, a close relative of Dutch.
    Again, they are NOT Africans, they are Afrikaans.

    You know not of what you speak. You are stupid. And I am not saying this to "bully" you or to "play a victim card" (huh?). You simply don't make sense and that is b/c you are Dumbass-American whose family traces back to Dumbass European and that may explain your idiotic stance a bit more.
    I'm done corresponding with a Dumbass-American who doesn't understand the difference b/w Afrikaner and Afracan yet writes in bold to try to "EDUMACATE" people to believe the same nonsense she does. You're pathetic. I feel sorry for you. Get an education.

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker

    It has nothing to do with Black people not wanting to be black, it's all prefrence in that person's eyes. I mean would it be safe to say that white people don't like their color? Hence why they bake in the sun for hours on end to get a bronze skin tone like that of Hispanics and people from the Mediterranean. It's all relative. I live in Florida and have been here all my life. God only knows how many woman, white woman have looked at a Cuban, Puerto Rican, Brazilian woman's skinned tone and have said the their friends 'I love her skin tone, God I wish I had that skin tone. But I have to use tanning lotion, tanning beds, and my days off at the beach to get HER naturaly nice color.' Maybe this is the darker tone's version of a reverse sun tan.

  98. 98

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – sorry about my english but wtf is your problem im a white dominican, and theres a lot of skins colors here, the black people here the morenos dont want to be white there very proud, so dont talk if you dont know my country, most of the dominican population is mestiza betwen black(africans) and white(spanishs).
    so you mom came here and that guy wtf ….r you crazy no one here is idolize or descriminated for their color.
    so shut the fuck up

    qué feo se ve ahora Sammy por Dios… pobre inconforme

    Re: mr_perez – I see, so "most of the dominican population is mestiza betwen black(africans) and white(spanishs)"? REALLY???????
    B/c…um….many people here (including the Dumbass-American "imsoregistered" REFUSE to believe that Dominicans have black heritage. Yet you, A DOMINICAN, clearly point out that "MOST OF THE DOMINICAN POPULATION IS MESTIZA BETWEN(sic) BLACK (AFRICANS) AND WHITE (SPANISH)"
    Thank you for clarifying that!!!!! (For the stupid people like Dumbass-American "imsoregistered" who just cannot understand that concept in her(his) empty little head) LOL SMH
