Little Mix singer and other Black female stars are discussing racism in the music industry.
She addresses colourism, where darker skinned people face more discrimination and prejudice.
In one scene, Pinnock tackles Gray about an old message in which he said Black women wearing red lipstick look like [offensive tweet]“burnt toast with jam on it”
The singer said she “felt a bit sick” after seeing the tweet.
“I was really upset because I was just like, 'Who is this person? This is horrible.' That wasn’t the person that I knew. When they surfaced, my heart sank. Because I was like, 'That is not the person that I met. It sounds like a child, like a silly child'. We could have a child and it could come out darker than us.”
Her fiance, footballer Andre Gray said there was “no excuse” for the message, which was from 2012.
"There's no excuse at all, when it all came out and stuff, like obviously I was embarrassed, ashamed, disappointed… but at the same time I had to be a man about it. I've made that mistake and I've learnt, and I've educated myself and grew up to understand how offensive and how wrong it was what I did. There was never any malice, but again, no excuse."
