The Grammy-nominated musician said she has grown up since then and realizes and understands the impact of her words.

She posted the written apology on her Instagram stories that read, “When I was younger, I used language that I’m deeply ashamed of and will regret forever.”

Cabello said, “I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language, I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it.”

“I’m 22 now,” she continued. “I’m an adult and I’ve grown and learned and am conscious and aware of the history and the pain it carries in a way I wasn’t before.”

The ‘Havana’ singer further continued, “These mistakes don’t represent the person I am or [the] person I’ve ever been,” she added. “I only stand and have ever stood for love and inclusivity and my heart has never, even then, had an ounce of hate or divisiveness.”

The ‘Fifth Harmony’ singer was accused of using racial remarks in now-deleted Tumblr accounts from seven years ago. The posts resurfaced this week when social media users uploaded screenshots of Cabello’s old and offensive words, forcing the performer to issue an apology again, reported a media channel.

“As much as I wish I could, I can’t go back in time and change things I said in the past. But once you know better, you do better and that’s all I can do,” Cabello said.
