"I'm receiving a lot of comments in regards to my latest photo," she wrote. "I am being told that I am 'black fishing.'"

She continued: "Thank you all for educating me on this topic. I recently went on vacation in the sun, and with my Italian heritage I tan very easily. There is no self tanner involved. Or intention of looking darker than my own natural skin color."
