Early last week, beauty blogger Laura Lee deleted social media after old, racist tweets of hers resurfaced.
She copped a lot of criticism from her remarks, when she wrote, "Tip for all black people if you pull ur pants up you can run from the police faster.. #yourwelcome."
Now, she's back and with an apology in hand.
“I’m so sorry for disappointing you. It hurts me so bad to disappoint you all who have supported me for so many years. And know that I’m better than that person. Six years ago, I decided to retweet things that were so vile and hurtful. I was so stupid and ignorant and I have no excuses here today; I’m not here to give you an excuse. I’m only here to say that I’m so sorry and I hope one day that you guys can see me for the woman that I am and that I can prove to you guys that I’m not that girl.”
“I feel so disappointed that I don’t even like to look at myself because I can’t even believe I would retweet ugly things that would hurt people,” she sobbed as the video progressed. “I can’t believe I couldn’t see the pain behind that kind of tweet and that kind of behavior. And I am so sorry; there’s no excuse.”
But fans aren't that happy with her apology, calling it insincere.
