Her history of overt racism has had consequences for pop singer Camila Cabello. The pop singer has apologized for using "horrible and hurtful language," referring to posts and memes the now-22-year-old shared when she was a teenager that were made public on Twitter this week.
In her apology, posted on Instagram and Twitter, she wrote:
When I was younger, I used language that I’m 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 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,” she continued.
