Nicole Arbour Responds To Backlash For "This Is America: Women's Edit"

posted by Jadd - 

I'm going to save my opinion for the end, because it runs pretty much parallel to what Bethany Watson, formerly of the Elvis Duran Morning Show, had to say. YouTube celeb (who isn't, nowadays, really?) Nicole Arbour ended up recreating Donald Glover/Childish Gambino's "This Is America" song and video to show the suffering women have gone through during history.

But it was seen as a HUGE appropriation of what Donald Glover, a black man, created about black culture, by a white woman. Not her intention, but there wasn't one original thing about it aside from swapping out lyrics, and THAT'S where the major problem lies.

Below is her "Women's Edit" and then her response to the backlash, then Bethany's comments on why it just wasn't the best execution.
