Must not mention brown skin

Big Brother star Skye Wheatley has raised eyebrows after making some controversial comments during a make-up tutorial posted on YouTube.

The 22-year-old reality star said she wished she was a 'naturally tanned Aboriginal' in the 12-minute clip.

Skye made the remarks after talking about her hands, which featured a streaky tan.

'I apologise. I'm not a naturally tanned Aboriginal. I wish I was. But unfortunately I'm not,' Skye said.

One viewer claimed that Skye's comment were inappropriate, writing, 'You look so hottt (sic) but what you were saying was so disrespectful.'

Speaking with Daily Mail Australia, Skye said: 'I think no matter what I say people are always going to be offended.'

In the UK a while (ok, an age) ago, folks used to say in Summer, "Oh Lord make me brown like the Australians.... but not the burnt ones" (No reference to Aboriginals is implied, nor can one be inferred).
