“Diversity’s performance referred to challenging and potentially controversial subjects, and in our view, its central message was a call for social cohesion and unity.
“Any depictions of violence by the performers were highly stylised and symbolic of recent global events, and there was no explicit reference to any particular political organisation – but rather a message that the lives of black people matter.”
Ashley shared the news on his Instagram page today after breaking his silence about the complaints last weekend.
He wrote: “Creativity is always a leap of faith.
“All I did what was what felt right and I’d do it 100 times over… Sending love to everyone that stood by us #Diversity.”
