A dancer in Camila Cabello (24)’s new clip has so much makeup that he looks like a white man with a bad spray tan. The singer made this known this weekend after she was accused of blackface, in which a white person is darkly made up to resemble someone of a different ethnicity.
“It wasn’t supposed to look like everyone in the video was Latino”
The clip for the song “Don’t Go Yet” was made in the style of the 80s, and the dancers had to look like characters from that time, the singer explained in a tweet. “The idea was to make everyone in the video look like an over the top 80s figure, so there must be a white dude with a horrible orange spray tan in there too.”
Camila says she did her best to show a multicultural group of dancers: ‘It didn’t have to look like everyone in the video was Latino. There are white people in it, African Americans, Latinos, et cetera. So I didn’t mean to make this dancer look Latino at all. Because that’s not a lot of people in the group.’
