Danileigh Claps Back After 'Yellow Bone' Backlash

Danileigh trended online most of Thursday, after previewing a new single titled "Yellow Bone" via her social media.

"YELLOW BONE THATS WHAT HE WANT," she captioned the post.

Social media felt that Danileigh's song, elevating the status of light-skinned women, was backward for 2021 and -- and proceeded to drag her... because Danileigh isn't even a Black woman.

Furthermore, many folks thought the song was a diss to DaBaby's baby mama, who is a darker-skinned Black woman.

After being ripped to shreds on social media, Danileigh tried to defend herself instead of issuing an apology.

"Why I can't make a song for my light skin baddies??" wrote DaniLeigh. "Why y'all think I'm hating on other colors when there are millions of songs speaking on all types... Why y'all so sensitive & take it personal... Gahhhh damn."

She then offered an apology of sorts via Twitter:

"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.
