While she was hanging out with her bae Joe Jonas at the gym, their friend DJ Brendan Fallis recorded a clip of Sophie. In the clip Brendan turns the camera to face Sophie, where she can be heard ~supposedly~ saying "What's up my n****!".
Watch the video below and see what you think.
Fans were not impressed.
Dammmnnn. How do you come back from that?
Well, Sophie has come out and defended herself against the allegations, claiming that she never even used the racial slur at all. Instead, she claims that she said, "What's up motherf****."
She spoke to E! News about the incident, explaining that "I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word."
It is difficult to make out exactly what she is saying in the clip, so who knows. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
