DaniLeigh Shares Another Lengthy Apology In Response To “Yellow Bone” Controversy
DaniLeigh was met with heavy criticism after previewing a new song titled “Yellow Bone” on Instagram. Well, she’s now released another lengthy apology for the controversy.
The song was met with numerous accusations of colorism for obvious reasons and DaniLeigh initially apologized with a series of tweets claiming that she can’t be canceled.
Days later, she has posted a video to her Instagram attempting to make a genuine apology for her actions. “I think people twisted it into thinking, like, I’m trying to bash another woman, another skin tone, that was never my intention.”
She continued, “I wasn’t brought up like that, I never looked at my skin as a privilege. I never looked at me as ‘I’m better than somebody because of my skin tone,’” she says in the video.
DaniLeigh did feel the need to make a second apology for the unreleased song and her reaction to criticism, bringing up how she’s dating DaBaby, who she calls a “chocolate man” and also references her “dark-skinned friends.”
As even The New York Times itself has covered the “I have black friends” myth as a deflection tactic to excuse racist behavior, that is another thing she definitely could’ve researched first before deciding to publicly say.
She also notes that “brown skin women flaunt their skin all the time in music” following that observation up with “why can’t I talk about mine?” Again, this seems to miss the point that women with darker skin are disproportionately attacked and mistreated for it, making the reclamation a political act, whereas the term “yellow bone” does on some level promote colorism, by nature.
