Former "Dance Moms" star Maddie Ziegler released a statement on Tuesday addressing past “ignorant and racially insensitive” videos that have recently surfaced online.
"There are a few videos some of you have seen from when I was about 9 years old where I thought it was funny to mock people and accents," Maddie, 17, wrote on social media. "I'm honestly ashamed and I'm truly sorry for my actions."
The professional dancer noted she would "absolutely not" make the same decisions today, adding that she has "grown up" since then.
The teen continued: "What I thought was silly humor when I was younger I know was actually ignorant and racially insensitive.
[...] The "Dance Moms" alum's younger sister, Mackenzie Ziegler, 16, also issued an apology earlier this week on Instagram Live.
"I'm much more educated now than I was before, and I'm so sorry," she said on TikTokRoom. "I'm so sorry that I offended the Black community. I would never treat you like that now. I would never."
Zeigler also announced she's donating to the NAACP as penance:
Imagine accepting that donation without shame.
Girls in the 2010's would celebrate turning 16 with a Sweet 16 party, now in 2020 they apologize for their whiteness and give donations to the NAACP.
Have any leaders of this cultural revolution come out and said these girls don't need to apologize?
Of course not.
No one, no matter how young or innocent, is off-limits in this top-down cultural revolution.
As I reported in June, CBS Pittsburgh's KDKA helped lead a social media mob to go after two middle schoolers and even contacted police over the kids making a joke reenactment of George Floyd's death with their friends.
You can riot in the streets, throw Molotov cocktails at police, burn Bibles and topple statues all day long without the media complaining one bit but if you made "racially insensitive" jokes about non-whites when you were a child you need to be forced to apologize!
Talk about "fragility!"
