Little Mix Break Silence On Jesy Nelson Departure & Blackfishing Controversy

Published: Monday 1st Nov 2021 by Ryan

Little Mix is not holding back.

Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Perrie Edwards sat down with The Telegraph, where they talked their former bandmate Jesy Nelson and her Blackfishing controversy.

Their words below…

Pinnock said:

“Capitalising on aspects of Blackness without having to endure the daily realities of the Black experience is problematic and harmful to people of colour.”

“We think it’s absolutely not okay to use harmful stereotypes. There’s so much to say on that subject that it’s hard to sum up in a sound bite.”

Thirlwall then went on to say that the band doesn’t want to “dwell” on the situation and are more focused on celebrating their current accomplishments.

“We don’t want to talk about the video, or be critical, but one thing we will clarify regarding the Blackfishing situation is that Jesy was approached by the group in a very friendly, educational manner.”

Little Mix’s interview comes mere days after Nelson appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show,’ where she said that she and the girls do not speak anymore.

    Wonder if this educational moment was when she was actually in the group?

    If not, never too late to educate her, but they were letting it slide while she was in the group, no need to speak up now.

    Just looks petty if you want to call her out now that she parted ways

      They say in the interview that it was whilst she was in the group. Not sure why TGJ neglected to add that bit.

      • akathexfactor November 2, 2021

        @nomeena jesy was on her way out of the group. It was right before she left after they filmed the video for the last single. Still a little to late.

    Drag that ugly b*****! She f****** deserves it. All that mouth, playing victim and letting her bandmates look like the bad guys, then releasing a song and video where she really DOES think she’s black! And that’s coming from me! Someone who doesn’t often agree with this “blackfishing” stuff as it mostly nonsense and people nit-picking. But THIS bîtch? I see it.

    • marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) November 1, 2021

      Yesssssss that jizzy b I t c h thinks she’s Beyoncé of the group or something, gurl bye 💅🏿

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 1, 2021

        She wasn’t EVEN the Farrah of the group! 🤣

    • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 November 1, 2021

      Exactly, and why is homegirl even trying to be in the front when her music isn’t all that, she’s an average dancer at best and her mic is OFF lol 🎤 Jesy needs to be behind somebody lmaooooo 🤣 Messing up the flow lol 😂 Little Mix was her moment 😂 👀

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 1, 2021

        You could SEE she was envious of the other girls. It wasn’t “poor mental health” that she left them, it was ENVY. She thought by going solo, she’d overshadow them lmaoooooooooo 🤣 She’s a narcissist, plain and simple.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 1, 2021

        Little Mix need to jump up and down and shout “Go team!” 👑👠 lmaoooooooooo 🤣

    Team little mix. Bye Jesy! Bye nicki!

    • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 November 1, 2021

      lol 😂

  5. Champ November 1, 2021

    Serves Jesy’s entitled ass right. She’s the textbook definition of Blackfishing! Shame on Nicki, Diddy and others for condoning her foolishness.


    • akathexfactor November 2, 2021

      So now it’s Nick’s fault? Keep the energy for the Kardashians and anybody who works with them!

    Why didn’t anyone jump down Xtinas back for the “Can’t Hold Me Down” video back in the day? What about Lady Gaga’s orange ass in the “Nothing Else I Can Say” video? I’m even old enough to remember Diddy painting his girl group Dream dark as hell in the “Krazy” video they dropped.

    White b****** been doing this! Go cancel Ariana while you’re at it!

      People were a lot more united then. It wasn’t so much about race as it has been since the Democrats decided to pit us against each other, making everything about race and causing a huge divide. They have to create a problem where is mine so they can come in and “save the day,” or they really wouldn’t get any votes.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 1, 2021

        *create a problem where there is none

    • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣)👊🏻💎💋 November 1, 2021

      @J aka Tyty the ratchet drag queen, you need to know the difference between beautiful silky smooth sun tanned skin and somebody turning their skin ashy and dry like black peoples skin.
      Black people don’t even want dark skin that’s why so many celebrities bleach their skin, and rightfully so.

      • J November 1, 2021

        @AshyBitch Shut the f**** up you ignorant ol bittch. 🖕 U just wish you could tan during the summer 😍 U cant go from a light caramel to milk chocolate in the sun. You just stay dry like powder and ash all year long. can’t relate to your pale-ass motherfuckerr. 🤷🏾‍♂️

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 1, 2021

        @J except pale skin isn’t dry, darker skin is. The lighter the skin, the silkier it is. The darker the skin, the dryer it is. It’s why the darker someone is, the ashier they get. Pale skinned people don’t get ashy. It’s not being derogatory, it’s just the way it is.

      • Fancy BISH (FCK Maristench, Danzou The Fool & Clarksdump 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 November 1, 2021

        Shayla Queen™ 👑 educate that clown, everyone knows that black skin is ashy yuck! @J you should go back to using your Tyty account where I exposed you as a liar from the UK 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • akathexfactor November 2, 2021

        @fancybish shut your racist ass up! White people get ashy and dusty like your powder ass!

      • Fancy BISH (FCK Maristench, Danzou The Fool & Clarksdump 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 November 2, 2021

        @akathexfactor your momma’s 𝕡𝕦𝕤𝕤𝕪 is ashy.

    • Your Name November 1, 2021

      Because all of that happened before the WOKE era. People are more socially aware today….


      And there was no social media.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 1, 2021

        Being “woke” isn’t actually being woke at all. Another contradiction in the whole facade. Look deeper.

    • PettySpaghetti November 1, 2021

      They dragged Christina for filth for that, idk how old you are but I definitely remember her catching hell

  7. Urg November 1, 2021

    So y’all going to pretend that she wasn’t blackfishing while she was still a member of the group only know she going solo her blackfishing is a problem OK cool.

    • Nomeena November 1, 2021

      They said in the interview that they spoke to her about it whilst she was in the group.

  8. Aj November 1, 2021

    Get ’em Jade 😂

  9. Paulo November 1, 2021

    I love Jade for standing up for LeighAnne and letting everyone know the group stands united on this matter. f*ck Chucky’s Tan Bride
