A tanning-addicted student who sometimes gets mistaken for being a different race has argued that she’s ‘not racist’ and that she just really likes ‘having a tan.’
Hannah Tittensor is a 22-year-old college student from Belfast who discovered she really loves being bronzed and has now become addicted to being tan. She will regularly hit the tanning beds but also uses under-the-counter tanning injections of a substance called Melanotan, which helps users go darker more quickly under sunlight or sunbeds.
However, not everyone is a fan of her really tan skin color. “People say that I wanted to be a black woman and that I wanted to switch races and stuff just because I’m tanning, but I don’t really care,” she said. “These people don’t actually know me.”
Despite the side effects of these injections, which include leaving her feeling sick, her boyfriend Ben has joined the fray and also uses the injections. People are ripping her on social media but she says, ‘I’m not racist at all. I’m just a white girl who likes to be overly-tanned.
