Camila Cabello Apologizes for Racist Tumblr Posts: I Was Uneducated and Ignorant

The former Fifth harmony member says she’s ‘deeply ashamed of and will regret forever’ the offensive contents that she once posted and reblogged on her old account.

AceShowbizCamila Cabello regretted her offensive Tumblr posts. The “Havana” hitmaker issued an apology after she came under fire for dropping N-word, reblogging racist meme and joke as well as xenophobic post, and making fun of Rihanna being a victim of domestic violence in her old Tumblr account that recently resurfaced on the web.

“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,” she wrote on her Instagram Story.

“I apologized then and I apologize again now. I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart,” she went on. “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.”

“I’m 22 now and I’m an adult and I’ve grown and learned and am conscious and aware of the history and the pain it carries in a way I wasn’t before,” she continued. “Those mistakes don’t represent the person I am or a person I’ve ever been. I only stand and have ever stood for love and inclusivity, and my heart has never, even then, had an ounce of hate or divisiveness. The truth is I was embarrassingly ignorant and unaware.”

The former Fifth Harmony star concluded her statement, “II use my platform to speak out about injustice and inequality and I’ll continue doing that. I can’t say enough how deeply sorry and ashamed I feel, and I apologize again from the bottom of my heart.”
