Why are people so upset with the altered image of Dani’s daughter? Well because Dani has made some colorist statements in the past.

It immediately received backlash from people who accused her song of being racist and colorist, especially considering that DaniLeigh, who is Dominican-American, has never claimed blackness or said she was Afro-Latinx.
