Singer Sabrina Claudio issued an apology after some of her old racist messages surfaced.

The racist tweets were discovered after Claudio — who’s of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent — told a fan that she used to run a Twitter account called @ODamnYourUgly.

Eventually, people started to comb through old messages and some disparaging comments about Black women were exposed. Claudio also made a negative remark about dark-skinned Latinas and used the n-word as well. On top of that, she called someone a “sweaty chonga” during an argument.

“It must suck to [be a] Black girl with no booty,” one of the messages read. “N—-, God Bless you,” she wrote in another.

 

The singer issued this apology: “I am deeply sorry for the insensitive words I’ve used,” she tweeted. “Some of the things you are seeing are true while others aren’t. I realize my past ignorance is affecting people I care so much about, and I am so sorry. I made mistakes, and while I cannot take them back, I will learn from them.”

Despite trying to douse water on the flaming controversy with an apology, it didn’t seem to work, because many accused her of being insincere. 

“I love you Sabrina, but you really had a whole page dedicated to insulting Black women, and one comment you made was just this year,” wrote one disappointed fan.

“Growth occurs for yourself, not to save your career,” someone else tweeted.

At the same time, others defended the 21-year-old and said she should be given a chance to learn from all of this and change.

“People are allowed to grow you know,” wrote one woman named Venus. “Who’s to say she hasn’t addressed these issues? She’s also not denying it. Y’all would’ve been upset whether she had apologized or not.”

“You defending a woman who’s dedicated a whole account to trolling Black women,” wrote Twitter user Kristen Maya.
