Bleeding Cool shared that the Disney Pins Blog posted a picture of a Black Panther open-edition pin that was available at Disney Parks that made it appear that the character had a lighter skin-tone than the character has in the comics or films. This is the pin that was shared on Bleeding Cool:
If you visited the Disney Pins Blog this morning, you will notice that a different image appears on their site which features the Black Panther with a darker skin tone.
The Disney Pins Blog took to Twitter to explain the situation:
Sorry for any confusion the previous photo may have caused. It was unaltered, but shot under a bright light at the pin store and may have caused differences in color. We are constantly posting all of the many new pin releases and sometimes make mistakes. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/05r8xELEk6
