Rebecca Black is owning up to her past mistakes and apologizing to her fans for participating in a joke about the Holocaust.
The joke in question happened many years ago during a video with Shane Dawson, who is under fire for a lot of things this week, including trying to bring down James Charles in a grand scheme and sexualizing Willow Smith.
“I am deeply ashamed to have taken part in such an offensive bit,” Rebecca wrote on Twitter, following fans re-surfacing the video to call her and Shane out on it. “Yes I was 16, uncomfortable, and didn’t know this was coming.”
She adds, “Shane, I know that deep down you are trying to learn and grow. But we must do better & take complete responsibility for how harmful this is. @shanedawson.”
Rebecca also added a true apology for her actions.
“I am so sorry to those I have hurt,” she wrote. “I wish what I would have done was shut such an offensive joke down, rather than uncomfortably play into something I deep down knew was wrong.”
