Camila Cabello issued an apology on Instagram for her past racist language. The apology came after several old tweets and Tumblr posts resurfaced on social media, some of which can be seen below.
“When I was younger, I used language that I am deeply ashamed of and will regret forever. I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language, I was deeply embarassed i ever used it,” she wrote. “I apologized then and I apologize again now. I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart.”
Despite her apology, fans aren’t convinced that her motives are sincere. Some don’t believe her age excuses her from not knowing that her words were racist. They also don’t feel like her apology makes up for the frequency of the posts.
