Sabrina Claudio is still apologizing for the demeaning comments she made about dark-skinned women on Twitter using a different name.
The rising R&B star has deleted the offending tweets and later did the same thing with the account.
After failing to react, the “Unravel Me” artist took to Twitter on Thursday where she wrote:

It was short and sweet, but most critics say it was enough because Claudio barely touched on the things that she did wrong or the people she has hurt.
Four days later, with the controversy still going strong, the Florida native decided to post a more lengthy message on Instagram.
The 21-year-old “Belong To You” singer shared: “I’ve made many mistakes in my life. Many that have happened when i was young, lost and did not know who i was as an individual. Ones that have no excuse. Time doesn’t matter, whether it was six years ago or two minutes ago. It was still wrong. The words i used then are not who i was or who i am today. Yes, I made ignorant comments that i regret. But to make this clear, I never had an account dedicated to taking down women. It breaks my heart knowing that this rumor has been created and is being spread out.”
Claudio also took a stance against all forms of discrimination and added: “Discrimination in any form no matter who it’s directed to is not acceptable.I’ve grown as a woman. My heart, my mind, my emotions, my body, my everything. My music is dedicated to empowering women…empowering all people for that matter. It’s what I represent. It’s what i’m proud of most. I am so different than what i’m being painted out to be. But it’s my fault that you all feel the way you do. I am willing to prove to you who i really am.”
The young lady, who has worked with performers like Khalid and 6lack, has yet to work with black and Latina women, the people she targeted with her racist tweets.
Claudio has turned off the comments on her Instagram page hoping that this PR nightmare will go away. However, a lot of her former minority fans say they will no longer support her career.
