Tory Lanez took a stand against directors who have colorism when creating music videos for artists. He made the statement below on his Instagram.
This is an On -Going problem in our community of entertainment that needs to stop . 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 #BlackIsBeautifulTory Lanez
However, a UK artist by the name of NoLay did not appreciate Tory Lanez comment about the director. She claims the director is not anything like the way Tory Lanez described him. This came out when UK blogger Irs Bless 1 had a back and forth discussion on her Instagram comment section.
It’s definitely true the director for this video is definitely not like that at all and I couldn’t stand Tory before, but now he’s cancelled COMPLETELY.NoLay – Instagram
The UK blogger then stated how the director should sue because it could have ruined his career. No Lay continued the conversation by stating:
He thought he could come to the UK and then go home and lie on one of our longest and most respected directors who has been putting down for the culture for years. I have no respect for this clown at all.NoLay – Instagram
