Little Mix is not holding back.
Their words below…
“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.
