Sabrina Claudio Issues Second Apology For Racist Tweets

Sabrina Claudio Issues Second Apology For Racist Tweets

Earlier this week, it came to light that Sabrina Claudio was the owner of a Twitter account responsible for sending out posts deemed  being as derogatory against black women. Naturally, Twitter did its thing and the Miami-bred singer-songwriter was forced to reckon with the demeaning comments she had made back in 2012 prior to establishing her career. While she was slow to act, she eventually put out a brief apology on Twitter under her official account, deleting the old one.

Most critics weren’t too pleased with Claudio’s apology and Friday, she took to Instagram to deliver on a lengthier post, issuing a second statement on the situation.

“I’m sorry for not saying something sooner. I’m sorry for the short, straight to the point apology I posted on Twitter,” she wrote. “I’ve made many mistakes in my life. Many that have happened when I was young, lost and did not know who I was as an individual. Ones that have no excuse. Time doesn’t matter, whether it was six years ago or two minutes ago. It was still wrong. The words I used then are not who I was or who I am today.”

She went on to add her condemnation of discrimination and the tearing down of other women, suggesting that her music is created in direct contrast to such things.

Recently, she dropped off two new singles, including the Khalid-assisted “Don’t Let Me Down.” Soon enough, though, this controversy managed to eclipse it all. Read her full statement down below.
