Songstress Avril was the topic of discussion when she posted a photo of herself without make up on Instagram with the caption; “Those mornings where I wake up with nothing but blemishes, sun and smile on my face #TeamAcneFaceThatbreaksOutWhenItfeels.”

Top celebrities do anything to uphold their status and physical appearance and hide their flaws, but Avril was brave enough to post the picture, of an imperfect face with heavy acne scarring on her forehead and what could be the traces of a unibrow.

As expected, a section of Kenyan’s came out to attack Avril and make fun of her, while another section had an outpouring of love and support for Avril, for being brave and comfortable in her own skin.

“Society has its misgivings and I don’t blame them. I have learnt to accept the fact human beings will be human beings. Just by me taking a picture of myself not having makeup and struggling with acne, I was insulted for an entire day nonstop by people I don’t know and probably will never meet, women and men alike. I think everyone is entitled to their opinion and ‘perfection is the disease of a nation,” she told Sunday Nation.

Check out the photo she posted below.
