Brazilian-born Abella Dangerous is back in the news after she made headlines when she was filmed appearing to use a “hot sauce” to remove facial hair in a Brazilian facial, prompting backlash and criticism.
A video posted by Abella’s agency, Celine, shows the actress posing with a bottle of hot sauce in one hand, and a small jar in the other.
The actress then pulls out her face mask, revealing a smudge of brown.
“So you want me to try to keep my eyebrows?
Well I’m not going to be able to,” she says in the video, with the bottle in one of her hands.
“I’m going to try this,” she tells the camera, then starts pouring the sauce over her face.
“If you want to see my eyebrows, let me see your eyebrows.
It’s like a secret sauce, right?
That’s why I do it,” Abella adds.
“And you know, I don’t care about the eyebrows.”
She then removes the mask and walks away.
The incident has sparked a backlash against Abella, and some are questioning whether the “hot sauces” comment is real, while others believe it’s a Photoshop job.
“She’s a Brazilian.
She’s got a lot of experience in the industry,” said Brazilian-born actress Erika Rodrigues, whose face she was photographed wearing in the clip.
“The whole idea of that is ridiculous.
It was just a joke.
It should be seen as a joke.”
Rodrigues said that it is possible that Abella had a misunderstanding.
“It could be that she had a problem with the hot sauce, but she didn’t,” she told CNN.
“There is no truth in that.
I think she’s a beautiful woman, and I’m sorry that she got upset with the people who love her.”
Abella has also been criticized for her makeup choices in recent months.
A tweet from the account of actress Mariah Carey tweeted a photo of her in the “makeup chair” as part of an Instagram caption that read: “In Brazil you can’t just go out and buy your makeup.
You have to make your own.”
A representative for the actress said in a statement to the outlet that she was disappointed in the backlash against her, but that she believed it was a misunderstanding and that the actress had a legitimate problem with facial hair.
“Abella Dangerous did not imply that her style is to make people think she does not have eyebrows, or that she did not have her own hair,” the statement said.
“This was a Photoshop opportunity to demonstrate that the makeup artist was trying to create a different look to Abella and to make her look like she was wearing a wig.
Abella is not a model and has never done so.
Abellas hair has always been natural, and has always worn a wig, and her natural eyebrows are naturally defined.”
