Camila Cabello rejects using blackface in music video


Camila Cabello has responded to those calling her out for her recent video featuring a dancer wearing a ‘blackface’.

The Havana singer clarified that the dancer in her performance of Don’t Go Yet, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, was supposed to look like “a white man with a terrible spray tan.”

Taking to Twitter, Cabello wrote: “hey! so this dude was just supposed to be a white man with a terrible spray tan. we purposefully tried to pull together a multicultural group of performers, the expectation was not that everyone in the performance needed to be Latin.”

She added, “There are white people, African American people, latin people, etc. and so the point wasn’t to try to make everyone look Latin either. There are a lot of people in the performance who are not.”
