Camila Cabello Has Apologized After Racist Tumblr Posts From Her Teen Years Resurfaced
"When I was younger, I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of and will regret forever."
Yesterday, a viral Twitter thread by user @motivatefenty documented many racist posts that Camila Cabello allegedly shared on her Tumblr as a teen, between 2012 and 2013.
And this afternoon, Camila took to social media and apologized for her past behavior online.
"When I was younger, I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of and will regret forever," she wrote in a statement posted to her Instagram and Twitter.
"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 embarrassed I ever used it."
I apologized then and I apologize again now. I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart. As much as I wish I could, I can't go back in time and change things I said in the past. But once you know better, you do better and that's all I can do.
