Singer Camila Cabello was accused of racism after she announced her new single 'Don't Go Yet' on July 15, 2021 — the same day her former 'Fifth Harmony' bandmate Normani was dropping a new collab with Cardi B. Normani has previously shared her candid opinion about racist posts shared by a young Cabello, where she made seriously offensive remarks and even threw around the N-word. Though Cabello has apologized for her past behavior, Normani's fans have not been able to see the 'Havana' singer the same way again. 

"It would be dishonest if I said that this particular scenario didn’t hurt me. It was devastating that this came from a place that was supposed to be a safe haven and a sisterhood, because I knew that if the tables were turned I would defend each of them in a single heartbeat. It took days for her to acknowledge what I was dealing with online and then years for her to take responsibility for the offensive tweets that recently resurfaced. Whether or not it was her intention, this made me feel like I was second to the relationship that she had with her fans," Normani had shared an elaborate statement in 2020 after Cabello's old racist posts resurfaced. The two had been bandmates at 'Fifth Harmony' for years before they started focussing on their individual careers.

As promised before, Normani just released her new song 'Wild Side' where she has collaborated with Cardi B. However, just before Normani's new music video dropped, Cabello shared a teaser poster for her upcoming single 'Don't Go In Yet' which would be releasing on July 23, 2021. At the moment, Cabello is also gearing up for the release of her upcoming movie 'Cinderella'.

While Cabello's fans rejoiced at the announcement, it did not sit well with Normani's fans. They accused Cabello of racism and trying to sabotage Normani's release day by stealing the limelight. "Camila is one dirty chick not her trying to ruin Normani moment … she had all that time to drop its giving racism," one Normani fan tweeted. Another wrote, "not camila annoucing her single on normani day...smthn ain't right," while a third one said, "You’re replying under every tweet calling Camila out for announcing her drop on Normani’s release day. Obviously you feel something’s odd about that too. She’s very much so racist. Apparently the situation involving Normani was fake, but she’s still a racist."

"Still to this day I will never forget the racist s**t Camila’s fans sent to Normani I remember that s**t so vividly and all of it being on my timeline all f**king day for like two weeks I feel like it didn’t matter what fandom you were in we all saw it and we all remember it," another Normani fan tweeted.





Meanwhile, neither Normani nor Cabello issued any statement regarding the controversy.
