Tory Lanez Stands Up For Dark-Skinned Black Woman Who Was Dismissed By Music Video Director

While on the set for his new single “Good Love” last week, singer Tory Lanez stopped his video director from dismissing a darker-skinned model and replacing her with a lighter-skinned model.

Lanez shared his thoughts about the incident and racism in the music industry in an Instagram post:

“This is an On -Going problem in our community of entertainment that needs to stop,” he wrote. “As a black man , Sometimes I’m going to joke about the black community just like we all do . BUT WHAT IM NOT GOING TO DO IS ALLOW ANY OF THESE DIRECTORS TO DE-VALUE OUR BLACK WOMEN … countless times I’ve seen directors swap out our women of color for women of lighter complexion, or women with straighter hair ETC . … IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS ARTIST TO STAND UP AND NOT LET THIS HAPPEN .. it’s BEEN time to embrace our woman of color #BlackIsBeautiful.”
