Sammy Sosa was spotted in London appearing significantly whiter than ever. He is damn near Caucasian.
Just seen this on my IG feed and I swear, I hope I run into Sammy Sosa because I need to ask him a few questions. pic.twitter.com/QGRZbW8a4F

When the 48-year-old baseball legend first came to the United States at the age of 21, he had beautiful, melanin-filled brown skin. In 2009 he began bleaching his skin and appears lighter and lighter every time we see him. He claimed he bleached by choice and not due to self hate in a 2009 interview with Univision’s Primer Impacto show.
It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin tone. 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.
At this point, he has surpassed MJ. Twitter began to freak out (again). Many people expressed concern for Sammy Sosa’s mental state.

Colorism drove Sammy Sosa to evolve into John Candy ? pic.twitter.com/1vK5gzxwIH
