Selah Marley Stands Behind Her Decision To Walk In Ye's 'White Lives Matter' Fashion Show

She said what she said!

Selah Marley, the daughter of Lauryn Hill, isn’t backing down from her decision to walk in Ye’s Yeezy fashion show, where models rocked “White Lives Matter” tees during his ninth Yeezy fashion show.

Marley posted a message via her Instagram stories, discussing why she supported the Chicago native.

"The past 24 hours has allowed me to realize that most of [y'all] are stuck in a hive mind mentality. You do what the group tells you to do & 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. All morale [sic] & empathy is eliminated due to the fact that you feel justified by your emotions. The victim becomes the victimizer."

She continued, “You [cannot] bully me, manipulate me, or coax me into silence. Nor will you bully me into being who you want me to be. I don't care how many tweets you make, DMs you send, or articles you write. Throughout all the chaos, I have yet to speak on my experience. If you know me, you know that nothing I do is without deep thought and intention. Wait ['til] you hear what I have to say."

Selah also shared direct messages she sent to Ye in support of what he had done, and he subsequently reposted her words.

“[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. [I] love taking risks & embracing freedom, but in this case, [I] think we can continue to discuss the depth behind our decisions to show the purity of our intentions & provide healing to our community. love you so much. [Let's] keeping this going—in a healthy way."

The fallout surrounding the Yeezy show continues.

BET.com reported Ye gave a delusional speech during the “White Lives Matter” controversy. Candace Owens and Selah proudly wore the shirt.
