5H Girl Accused of Homophobia After Posting Problematic Snapchat
Nooo, girl, noooooo. Fifth Harmony should be celebrating the success of the girl group’s “That’s My Girl” music video, which hit the web about 24 hours ago. (Honestly, it’s one of the most lit MVs we’ve ever seen!!!) And, actually, that’s probably what the fivesome is doing rn. Instead, though, what at least one of ’em should be doing is damage control, ’cause there are more than a few members of the public that are fuming over Dinah Jane Hansen‘s recent words.
In one of the 19-year-old Polynesian beauty’s recent Snapchats, she posted a video in which she uses the word ‘gay’ as an insult. She says, “He thinks he’s so cute, [but he’s] so gay.” Watch here:

Naturally, Twitter was ablaze with heated responses:
Dinah Jane needs Hilary Duff to come and scalp her into awareness bc that girl's spewed ENOUGH homophobic bullshit. https://t.co/uPrW5OjjmG

The worst way to prove that dinah isn't homophobic is to show pics of her with the rainbow flag…like wow what a champion of lgbt rights

Others on the platform claim DJ’s not homophobic. Ignorant, yes, but homophobic, no:
I don't think Dinah is homophobic nor racist. She's just ignorant and u can't blame it on age anymore. Plus she doesn't care who she offends

dinah may be a little uneducated but she's not homophobic

Ok y'all. Dinah for sure isn't homophobic so stop saying that, what she said was just ignorant of her

Dinah is not homophobic she's just ignorant when it comes to understanding the community as a cishet person
