Internet Freaks Out Over Sammy Sosa’s Dramatic Change After Recent News Appearance [VIDEO]

Former Chicago Cubs superstar Sammy Sosa appeared on ESPN Deportes for a segment on the Home Run Derby. However, no one was talking about the home runs but people had plenty to say about Sammy’s new look.


According to CBS Sports:

Sosa’s lightening skin tone has been a source of wonder for people since 2009 when in a span of mere months Sosa came on TV looking a bit more pale than folks remembered him. He eventually had to deny claims that he was trying to lighten his skin, saying that it was a skin softener that “bleached [him] some” in the understatement of the year. And it was almost forgotten.

Then the Home Run Derby happened.

Twitterers then stepped into the batter’s box and began swinging for the fences:

In 2009, Sosa told Univision’s Primer Impacto, “It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some. 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. What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is. I don’t think I look like Michael Jackson.”
