After the death wishes and racial slurs comes…the apology.
Former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta (LHHATL) star Erica Mena has apologized for any damage she may have caused after calling Spice a “blue monkey” during a heated argument that aired on the reality TV show. Will Spice follow suit and apologize as well? Fat chance of that happening.
Mena claimed that her use of the slur, which left many shocked and outraged, was not racially driven.
“I deeply regret my insensitive comment and want to humbly apologize to anybody I hurt or offended by my thoughtlessness,” she said today (September 12, 2023) in a statement.
Added Mena: “My choice of words was wrong, and I take full responsibility for what I said. I am committed to listening to the voices of those affected and will work toward making amends. As a woman of color and the mother of two black children, I want to make it clear that my use of that word was not in any way racially driven. That said, I do understand the gravity of what I said and want to use my platform to promote inclusivity and equality.”
