Singer Danileigh, the girlfriend of DaBaby, released an apology over her track “Yellow Bone,” — but social media weren’t feeling it.
“I think it’s super important ’cause I definitely feel super misunderstood. I think people twisted it like I was trying to bash another woman and her skin tone. I never looked at my skin as a privilege. I see brown skin women flaunt their skin in music all the time. Why can’t I flaunt mine? I’m sorry I wasn’t sensitive to the topic, when I wrote my comment,” she said.
She continued, “It can be a personal thing to certain people ’cause colorism is a real thing. But I’m not that. I’m not a colorist or a racist. I date a whole chocolate man. I have chocolate friends. Skin is not something I even see. Because you don’t know me it’s like let me tell you guys what I meant by that. Hopefully you guys can watch it with an open heart and genuine mind. I’m sorry, again. I offended people who are truly offended. I am sorry.”
