Nene Leakes Apologizes For Rape Joke That Went Too Far: 'Some Words Can Cut Deep'
The Real Housewives of Atlanta celeb decided to act mature about her mistake and apologize. As fans of the hit show may be aware, Nene Leakes shocked the internet this weekend when she, during a stand-up show, made a very insensitive comment towards a female heckler.
After the crowd, including the woman in question, booed her, Leakes told her she hoped the heckler would get raped by her uber driver.
Today, Nene took to social media to officially apologize for it.
‘I truly regret and apologize for what I said on stage in Oakland over the weekend. Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intention of them doing so. As a woman and someone who's survived abuse, I regret the words I used. I made a mistake, and I should’ve known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I’m sorry,’ Leakes wrote.
The RHOA star has been involved in quite a few controversial situations lately.
Just last week she slammed Kim Zolciak’s daughter Brielle Biermann after the blonde bombshell posted photos of cockroaches she apparently saw in Nene’s bathroom.
In a now deleted post, Leakes not only denied she had roaches but claimed the 20-year-old probably brought them in her ‘funky p***y.’
She went on to threaten her, saying that’s what happens when people mess with her and continued to slam Brielle by dissing the young woman for her plastic surgery.
Do you think Leakes’ apology was sincere?
