Last week, news broke that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actor Ellie Kemper won a 1999 beauty pageant at a ball that has racist and antisemitic origins.
Kemper issued an apology on Instagram a few days later.
"I was not aware of this history at the time, but ignorance is no excuse. I was old enough to have educated myself before getting involved," she wrote.
"I want to apologize to the people I've disappointed, and I promise that moving forward I will listen, continue to educate myself, and use my privilege in support of the better society I think we're capable of becoming."
