Greer Blitzer has come ahead with an apology for her previous phrases.
The season 27 Bachelor contestant shared a letter to her Jan. 24 Instagram Story, the place she addressed feedback she mentioned she made in protection of somebody who used Blackface.
“In my previous, I’ve made some uneducated, ignorant and albeit, flawed, feedback on my social media accounts,” the 24-year-old wrote. “Specifically, in 2016, I used misguided arguments on Twitter to defend a scholar who wearing Blackface as Tupac for Halloween.”
Blitzer continued, “I’m deeply sorry to these I’ve damage, particularly these inside the Black group, not as a result of these screenshots have resurfaced, however as a result of I ever shared these dangerous opinions in any respect.”
The contestant, who’s a medical gross sales rep from Houston, went on to say that her earlier feedback do not align together with her present self.
“Time and age do not excuse my actions, however this isn’t a mirrored image of who I’m at present,” she wrote. “I don’t stand by or condone the damaging opinions and behaviors I shared throughout that stage of my life and can without end remorse making these offensive remarks.”
