DaniLeigh and social media has been at odds all day Thursday (January 21st) following her preview of a new song titled “Yellow Bone,” on Instagram.
It is apparent in today’s social justice climate and racism sensitivity it may not have been the best idea to create a situation where one may be considered a colorist. This is the case however with DaniLeigh due to the single that she says is celebrating “my light skin baddies.”
Many pointed out the singer’s Dominican heritage and questioned why she was using terms typically associated with the Black community to describe herself.

The artist approached her detractors on social media who were attempting to cancel her and “drag down another woman.” She wrote in one tweet, “I’m Dominican…I’m Spanish, I’m Black, I’m white, leave me alone,” before penning a passive-aggressive apology.
“Congratulations y’all gotta another thing to say about me when u hate …it’s all good .. only God can “cancel” me… that sh*t don’t mean sh*t to me bc the people around me are the ones that know my heart and intention and real life … I’m sorry if I offended u,” she wrote in one tweet. Read the full apology/rant below.
The people kept at hitting up the artist as you can see from the tweets below.
