Camila posted these tweets about the situation:
i stand by the words "love only", meaning I won't tolerate on my timeline any kind of hate, racism, or discrimination towards ANYONE. period— Camila Cabello (@camilacabello97) August 6, 2016
You don't have to hate on somebody else to support me- I don't appreciate it and it's not what I'm about.. Be kind or move on— Camila Cabello (@camilacabello97) August 6, 2016
I never go on rants like that but there's so much cruel stuff going on in the world right now- let's be part of the healing, not the problem— Camila Cabello (@camilacabello97) August 6, 2016
darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.— Camila Cabello (@camilacabello97) August 6, 2016
Then today the group twitter eventually acknowledged what happened with this tweet:
but many fans pointed out that they wrote paragraphs defending their security guards but barely have anything to say in defense of Normani.
Lauren, who is usually very vocal about issues, just recently tweeted:
Love is loudest.— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) August 7, 2016
Ally recently tweeted:
Dinah hasn't publicly addressed the situation even though Normani has publicly defended her in the past.
Some fans' reactions:
@LaurenJauregui supposed "Best Friend" is racially discriminated and hated on your silent? Sure.— Normani Kordei (@cryinglaurmani) August 7, 2016
Normani got dragged and called a coon for defending those braids/your ignorance but youre as silent as a Fijian mouse rn @dinahjane97— bobby (@googleafijian) August 7, 2016
considering 5H have based off their image/sound/choreography from black culture, you'd think they'd be supporting Normani publicly, lol— angie (@allyscurrents) August 7, 2016
