Greer Blitzer has come forward with an apology for her past words.
“In my past, I have made some uneducated, ignorant and frankly, wrong, comments on my social media accounts,” the 24-year-old wrote. “In particular, in 2016, I used misguided arguments on Twitter to defend a student who dressed in Blackface as Tupac for Halloween.”
Blitzer continued, “I am deeply sorry to those I have hurt, especially those within the Black community, not because these screenshots have resurfaced, but because I ever shared those harmful opinions at all.”
The contestant, who is a medical sales rep from Houston, went on to say that her previous comments do not align with her current self.
“Time and age don’t excuse my actions, but this is not a reflection of who I am today,” she wrote. “I do not stand by or condone the damaging opinions and behaviors I shared during that stage of my life and will forever regret making those offensive remarks.”
