Lauryn Hill’s daughter, Selah Marley, is defending her decision to walk in Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion show, where Black models wore his YZYSZN9 collection, including T-shirts embellished with the words “White Lives Matter,” which sparked quite the outrage online.

Marley, 23, participated in the surprise Paris fashion show, confidently modeling one of the custom WLM shirts on the runway.

On Tuesday, Marley confronted spectators following the high volume of backlash, including comments, DMS and tags after being seen in the shirt. She addressed the matter via her Instagram Story, sharing that she won’t be bullied out of her personal beliefs.

“The past 24 hours as allowed me to realize that most of yall are stuck in a hive mentality,” she began in the post. “You do what the group tells you to do and think what the group tells you to think. Witnessing someone break free from ‘the agenda’ sends you all into such a panic that you will do whatever it takes to force them back into the box that you feel they should exist in.”

“You cannot bully me, manipulate me, or coax me into silence. Nor will you bully me into being who I don’t want to be,” she said. “I don’t care how many tweets you make, DMs you send, or articles you write.”

Marley stands by the decision to wear the shirt, especially since it was done with “deep thought and intention.” Marley suggested she would speak more on the topic later and even shared a text message she sent to Ye about having a conversation on the dislike surrounding the shirts and their intention.

“[I] think what we did has obviously created a lot of conversation & [I] would like us to continue that conversation & provide the necessary depth & clarity that we are both extremely capable of,” one of Marley’s texts read.

Fans were outraged by Marley’s stance, questioning how she got to these viewpoints with having such deep-rooted Black parents in the culture. These were some of the responses:

Another Black woman defending Ye is far-right analyst Candace Owens. The latter posted a photo of her and Ye behind the scenes of his surprise Yeezy fashion show sporting the problematic T-shirt with smiles on their face.

Owens defended her choice of wearing the shirt on her Daily Wire podcast by stating there are far more extraordinary circumstances for Black people to pay attention to other than the t-shirt. During her defense rant, Owens listed Black-on-Black crime, education and obesity while mentioning “Rumors” artist Lizzo distastefully regarding her weight while supporting her argument.

“You know what we should’ve done, we should’ve put a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt on Lizzo,” Owens said. “Maybe we could have gotten a lot of attention about obesity and how it’s actually killing black Americans.”

Owens went on to say that in her world, all lives matter, and no one specific life is special. She also mentioned a few words on a t-shirt should not dismantle the internet as it did following the picture of her and Ye.

“There is a deep irony and a sad irony when you consider that wearing a t-shirt has led to such a tremor throughout the world. A t-shirt that says ‘White Lives Matters,’ which should be implied,” Owens said. “White lives matter, black lives matter, Asian lives matter — it should be implied, yet people are angry, and they are being vicious online because they can’t believe that we have the audacity to detract from the movement, which is a lie: “Black Lives Matter.”

Another celebrity guest and model asked to wear the divisive gear was Jaden Smith. Smith tweeted about his disappointment in the choice of apparel and questioned Ye’s leadership.

“I Had To Dip. I Don’t Care Who’s It Is If I Don’t Feel The Message I’m Out,” Jaden tweeted.

“True Leaders Lead. Black Lives Matter,” he added.

According to Newsweek, The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) states the term “White Lives Matter” as a hate slogan used by white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan.
