‘Snowfall’ Actor Amin Joseph Responds After DaniLeigh Says She ‘Can’t Get Into’ The Show: It’s A Black Thang, You Wouldn’t Understand
“Am I the only one that can’t get into Snowfall”
“It’sa black thang, you wouldn’t understand”
DaniLeigh quickly deleted her tweet.
She has faced criticism in the past regarding her song Yellow Bone, as some accused her of being a colorist.
She later apologized for the song and made it clear she’s not a colorist.
She wrote on Instagram,
“I feel super misunderstood. My song ‘Yellow Bone Is What He Want’, I think people twisted it into thinking that I’m trying to bash another woman, another skin tone. That was never my intention. I wasn’t brought up like that. I ain’t never looked at my skin as a privilege, I’ve never looked at me as I’m better than somebody bc of my skin tone. “
She pointed out that she was just celebrating her own skin, like women with darker tones do.
“I see brown skin woman flaunt their skin all the time in music, why can’t I talk about mine? If you look at me, I’m light skin, I’m a yellow bone in my opinion thats just what i am. It wasn’t something that I looked at so deeply which i can see why people will take it deeply. I understand, and I’m sorry that I wasn’t sensitive to the topic when I wrote my comment like ‘why are you guys taking it so personal’ because it can be a personal thing to certain people because colorism is a real thing so I do get it, but i’m not that.”
“I’m not a colorist, I’m not a racist, I date a whole chocolate man , I have beautiful dark skin friends. Skin isn’t something I even see, its not something I look at.”
