Yesterday, Sky Ferreira released the video to her Night Time, My Time song “I Blame Myself.” The clip featured Ferreira as a makeshift leader for a gang, with intermittent cut-to’s of the group performing a choreographed dance number. Speaking with SSENSE in a behind the scenes interview, the singer says the story was supposed to be representative of “real life events,” but instead many have claimed that the video was racist and that Sky treats her co-stars as “props.”

Upon hearing this, Ferreira took to her Facebook to write a response, and defend herself against the allegations. Read her full statement below.
