The London Evening Standard Magazine has apologized to Solange for editing out part of her elaborately arranged braids for the cover of their recent magazine issue.
Their action, prompted the singer to post an unedited version of the shot to Instagram with the caption “dtmh,” as in “Don’t Touch My Hair.”
On Saturday, the Evening Standard released a statement about the controversy, which you can read in full below, via The Guardian:
“We were delighted to have the chance to interview the wonderful Solange Knowles and photograph her for this week’s edition of ES.
“It is therefore a matter of great regret that the finished cover artwork caused concern and offence.
“The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes, but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange.”
The edited photograph isn’t the only controversy regarding the Solange cover, though; Angelica Bastien, the journalist who wrote the feature, has disavowed it, saying the Evening Standard created a “fiasco despite my efforts.”
