Former “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown has apologized for her use of the N-word on social media.
The apology followed an incident on Saturday night in which Hannah, while on Instagram Live, sang lyrics to DaBaby’s song “Rockstar” — including the N-word. Video of the incident is no longer available on Hannah's Instagram account.
In a subsequent video, also no longer available on Instagram, she expressed surprise at having used the word and said “I’m so sorry” repeatedly. But Hannah also appeared in that video to blame her brother for saying the word, continuing, “I don’t think — maybe I did. Maybe it was Patrick,” after another unseen person speaking off camera seemed to encourage her to blame her brother.
Hannah to Instagram Stories on Sunday with a post in which she wrote, “I owe you all a major apology. There is no excuse, and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt that I have caused. I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better.”
Brown was the star of Season 15 of “The Bachelorette,” which aired last year on ABC.
