Bachelorette Hannah Brown apologizes AGAIN for saying the N-word in Instagram Live after ‘ignorant’ first apology – The Sun
THE Bachelorette star Hannah Brown has apologized again for saying the N-word during an Instagram Live.
The 25-year-old vowed not to be an "ignorant white girl" in an 18-minute long clip – two weeks after her followers clapped back at her initial apology.
Hannah had said the racial slur while singing along to DaBaby's song Rockstar as part of a TikTok post.
Fans immediately called her out on it and the reality star initially denied she'd said it consciously, before owning up to it.
The Alabama native said: "I attempted to talk, sing a popular TikTok dance and recited the N-word, and it was a part of the song.
"Initially I didn’t even know it was happening and I know it is wrong to say the N-word in a song, and I couldn’t imagine I had used it so I immediately denied it."
The Bachelorette star went on: "To be honest I didn’t know a lot, I don’t want to be ignorant anymore.
"I don’t want to be an ignorant white girl who uses the N-word, but I also don’t want to be someone who goes onto a platform intoxicated and engages in their platform that way."
While some of the Bachelor star's fans came to her defense after the slur, Hannah urged them not to support her.
She said: "If you want to support me, do not defend me. What I did, what I said was indefensible.
"I don’t need anybody to defend me for what I did because what I said, what I did was wrong.
"But I’m hoping that what I did was wrong but what I didn’t know even before is the worst part of it, and it’s the ignorance."
"I’m no longer ignorant and I’m no longer going to be part of the problem."
Hannah concluded the video by vowing to do better in the future.
"I will be a part of the solution, and you will see that. From the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry. I’m sorry to everyone I hurt and disappointed. I promise to continue doing better, I promise," she said.
When Hannah was first called out by a fan for saying the N-word during the livestream, she said: “I did? I’m so sorry.
"I don’t think… maybe it was [her brother] Patrick. Um, anyway…” she said with an awkward pause before she changed the subject.
The Dancing With the Stars champion later issued a statement on her Instagram Stories saying her language was "unacceptable".
The Bachelorette's Rachel Lindsay called Hannah out for the slur, before claiming she ghosted her after vowing to do a video apology.
