The world already knows and loves the legendary music star, Bob Marley. However, this time, the musician’s granddaughter Selah has been making headlines. The youngster became the talk of the town after she modeled a “White Lives Matter” outfit that rapper Kanye West designed.

Netizens believe that this quote parodies the “Black Lives Matter” movement, that was started to propagate racial equality in the USA and other parts of the world. After facing a lot of criticism, the model has finally reacted to the controversy and said:

“The past 24 hours has allowed me to realise that most of yall are stuck in a hive mind mentality. 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 should exist in.”

“What we did has obviously created a lot of conversation and I would like us to continue that conversation and provide the necessary depth and clarity that we both are extremely capable of.”
