Being described as vampire-ish as well as other scary terms, recent photos of disgraced baseball player Sammy Sosa have gone viral since he appeared on television in Panama a couple of days ago, according to Fox on Wednesday.
After Sosa’s appearance with Panamanian television personality Nairobi Dacosta, Twitter – the social media site – lit up with comments and pictures of Sosa – including pictures comparing how he looks now to how he looked in the 1990s when he was considered a baseball legend of sorts.
Obviously, Sosa has changed for the “lighter”: not weight-wise – but skin-color-wise. His dark complexion is gone and replaced with a pale-looking tone which isn’t being received by appearance-critics near and far.
There is a suggestion that Sosa’s skin condition could be from his long-term use of steroid-enhancement drugs – the drug usage that destroyed his legendary career. Many, however, will believe that he just shared the thoughts of Michael Jackson on skin tone and will assume that he has gone with a lighter complexion just because he wanted lighter-colored skin. Sosa coming clean on the reason won’t convince some – as we know he has lied in the past about things – such as his baseball career.
