    Gabourey Sibide on Elle Magazine Cover

    In a statement, Elle said, “Nothing out of the ordinary was done. We have four separate covers this month and Gabby’s cover was not retouched any more or less than the others. … If you take a look at the portfolio, each of the women were shot in different ways and for different reasons.”

    Elle’s editor-in-chief Robbie Myers told E! News that Sidibe’s skin was “absolutely not” changed and that she is “sad” over the accusations. She emphasized, “We absolutely did not lighten her skin.”

    Text continues after gallery:
