The star was implicated of dragging other female artists into an argument with her critics.

‘ Unnecessary’

” Think Lana’s post would have been fine if she hadn’t compared herself to a group of mainly black women with the clear tone that she thinks she’s been treated even worse by the media when that’s observably incorrect,” composed Shon Faye on Twitter

” Even if she made a point, the inclusion of other females was so unneeded and the fact the women were mostly black has left a bad taste,” included reporter Toni Tone

The Guardian’s Laura Snapes also reacted with a column in which she stated Del Rey’s “swipes at her peers of colour undermine her feminist argument”.
