Camila Cabello took to social media today (December 18) with a lengthy apology for “horrible and hurtful language” she used when she was “younger.”
In a post shared on Twitter and Instagram Stories, the “Señorita” singer wrote, “When I was younger, I used language that I’m deeply ashamed of and will regret forever. 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.”
Although she didn’t go into detail about specific comments that were made or what exactly prompted her to speak out, Twitter users claim that her apology is in reference to racially insensitive posts that she shared and liked on her Tumblr page several years ago.
And although she’s apologized for such comments in the past, a possible resurfacing of those posts on Twitter seemingly inspired her to apologize once again. [MTV News]
The catalyst for Ruth Wilson’s abrupt and mysterious exit from Showtime’s The Affair appears to be even more unseemly than you probably imagined.
Wilson, who to date has been cryptic if not entirely mum about why she parted ways with the drama at the end of Season 4, remains, as we all assumed, constrained by the terms of an NDA.
But the Dec. 19 issue of The Hollywood Reporter has an exhaustive (and exhaustingly depressing), 3,000-word account featuring numerous unnamed sources, alleging that Wilson had taken issue with “the frequency and nature of certain nude scenes” — some of which she is said to have deemed purely “titillating.”
Series creator Sarah Treem, meanwhile, allegedly did her best to cajole actors into dropping trou as often as scripted.
Wilson also reportedly refused to shoot an “aggressive sex scene” in which she was pushed up against a tree by leading man Dominic West because the actress was said to have been “unamused” by its “rapey” tone. [TV Line]
