Karol G is issuing an apology after her Black Lives Matter post got backlash.
The 29-year-old singer shared a picture of her black and white spotted dog that highlighted the movement.
The now deleted post read, “The perfect example that [the color] black and white together look beautiful. #BlackLivesMatter.”
After the backlash, Karol wrote an apology to the movement and to her fans about it.
“I was wrong and I apologize,” she wrote. “I want to make clear that my intentions were right in the photo I posted earlier. I meant to say that racism is terrible and that I cannot begin to understand it.”
Karol continued, “These past few days have been hard and its extremely painful to see it continue to happen. IT NEEDS TO STOP. There is only one race and that is the human race. I recognize that the way I expressed myself was not right.”
“I stand with Black Lives Matter. Under no circumstance should ANYONE experience such systematic oppression because of the color of their skin or for belonging to any minority group and I SUPPORT the protests and actions taken during these times to end police brutality and racism.”
“I am still learning and taking active steps to help, aid and evoke change,” she concluded, “and I continue educating myself to understand the experience.”
Just recently, Karol teamed up with the Jonas Brothers on their new single, “X”.
