“if you’re going to copy and paste articles from other accurate media outlets, you might want to make sure you’re using an image of the correct mixed race member of the group,” she wrote on Instagram Story.

Jade then added another note about always getting mixed up.

“This sh– happens to @leighannepinnock and I ALL THE TIME that it’s become a running joke. The amount of interviews where we get mixed up, I couldn’t count how many photographers or journalists over the years that have shouted for one of us on set and when we’ve walked over they’ve said ‘oh, you’re Jade?’ and awkwardly brushed it off as it’s a simple mistake when we both really know why,” she said. “I’ve even had ‘Oh sorry, you look similar.’ Really?! I’m done with us just having to laugh it off now…”

“It’s lazy journalism. It’s ignorant. It’s rude. It offends me that you couldn’t differentiate the two women of colour out of four members of a group,” Jade continued. “There’s even images of me in the article followed by an image of Leigh as if they couldn’t tell we’re not the same mixed race person?!?! DO BETTER.”

Leigh-Anne recently teared up while talking about her experiences with racism. See what she said here.

“There comes a point in every Black human’s life…you realize racism does not exclude you. Nine years ago, after joining Little Mix, I had the biggest awakening of my life> When we were filming ‘Wings,’ we worked with Frank Gatson. He said to me ‘you are the Black girl, you have to work ten times harder.’ Never in my life had someone told me I would need to work harder because of my race,” she said.

“My reality was feeling lonely while touring predominantly white countries. I sang to fans who don’t see me or hear me or cheer me on,” she went on to say, beginning to cry.

“My reality is feeling anxious before fan events and signings because I always feel like I’m the least favored. My reality is constantly feeling like I have to work ten times harder and longer to make my case in the group, because my talent alone isn’t enough.”

“My reality is all the times I felt invisible within my group. Part of me is fully aware that my experience would have been ever harder to deal with had I been dark-skinned. Our reality is no matter how far you think you’ve come, racism exists,” she continued.

“So let’s all continue to speak up on racism and keep this movement going. Thank you.”
