On Friday (Jan. 10), pop singer Slayyyter tweeted out a handwritten note to her followers apologizing for her use of racial slurs in past tweets from 2012 and 2013. "Happy belated new year and new decade, yes I am alive, and just wanted to speak again on some things," the note read. "I wanted to say again that I am sorry to all of my black followers, supporters, friends and colleagues for these tweets of me using the n-word from 2012-2013."
Back in December, a series of tweets from 2012 and 2013 resurfaced online showing Slayyyter, then operating a One Direction and Fifth Harmony stan account called @camilkacowbello, repeatedly using the N-word in tweets. Fans swiftly condemned the singer for constantly using the word, and the star issued an apology in December, saying, "I was extremely annoying and cringey and would use slurs and say other things online because I thought I was being funny or edgy. As I matured I realized it's never funny or cool to use those words under any circumstances."
