Tory Lanez Responds To Claims He Staged Colorism Video - MTO News

Singer Tory Lanez has denied that he staged the now viral video in which a director allegedly tried to swap a dark-skinned woman for a lighter-skinned one before he stepped in.

One of the women in the clip took to Instagram to accuse Lanez of staging the whole clip.

"Where's the scene then if Tory wanted me so bad," Sultry Shen posted on Instagram. "The director is the best director, I know. Fake news.

But Lanez is sticking to his story:

"This is the one and only time ima address this," he began the post. "I went out of my way to bring awareness to an important topic of discussion that never gets addressed. The internet has a funny way of tryna make light of truthful sh*t. IF it was a publicity stunt why would I be doing it for someone elses music video?" 

"Mind y'all this video happened 3 months ago and a behind the scenes camera man DM'd it to me the other day," Lanez continued. "All parties involved know what happened in the 30 minutes that I was at the shoot."
