Soul singer Lianne La Havas has removed herself from the #BritsSoWhite controversy on Twitter and she seems to have lost fans as a result.
La Havas who did not want to be tossed into the conversation called the trending hashtag, #BritsSoWhite, “racist and unfounded.”
La Havas was also one of those talented people who were snubbed. Her most recent album, Blood was not nominated and neither was she.
Fans were taken aback at her response and many took to Twitter to express their contrasting perspective on the whole controversy.
The singer responded to the backlash with this tweet:
This year’s Brit Awards has been accused of snubbing talented Blacks and people of colour.
This falls in line with other major award shows, where talks of diversity have taken over the headlines instead of the artists.
