Camilla Cabello Defends ‘Blackface’ Dancer


Camilla Cabello defended one of her dancers from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy, who was accused of wearing blackface.

“Hey! so this dude was just supposed to be a white man with a terrible spray tan,” she tweeted. “We purposefully tried to pull together a multicultural group of performers, the expectation was not that everyone in the performance needed to be Latin. There are white people, African American people, Latin people, etc. and so the point wasn’t to try to make everyone look Latin either. There are a lot of people in the performance who are not.”

The dancer posted his spray tan after the performance aired — and it was kinda terrible. “In case you missed my spray tan last night on @jimmyfallon with @camila_cabello,” he captioned his post.

Fans were upset.

“Camila what was going on with Dylan’s makeup?…having a dancer do blackface on stage in 2021 is absurd and you know better than that! say something immediately,” one viewer tweeted.
