Tory Lanez is defending himself after being accused of staging a video where he addressed colorism on the set of a music video. He took to Instagram to deny that he participated in an alleged publicity stunt. He wrote, “This is the one and only time ima address this. I went out of my way to bring awareness to an important topic of discussion that never gets addressed. the internet has a funny way of tryna take the light off of truthful sh*t . IF this was a publicity stunt, why would i be doing it for someone elses music video? why wouldn’t I have paid the females involved? And if I did pick both girls then how come there’s only shots of me with the ebony model and not the other one ?” 

He continued, “Mind y’all this video shoot happened 3 months ago and a behind the scenes camera man DM’d it to me the other day.. All parties that were involved know exactly what happened in the 30 minutes that I was at the shoot . Whether or not they wanna be truth or not . Much love .”
