"I will continue to learn from, and be open to, ALL people."
Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kim Zolciak, came under fire this past weekend for saying "this whole racism thing in this day and age is bullsh*t." Her comments were made during the show's reunion broadcast where she went off in an emotional rage, after feeling rejected by her castmates. "Everyone of those motherf–kers on that couch owe this world a f–king apology for this racism s–t," she said. "They already tried to claim that s–t long ago. Nobody bought into it then because the social media wasn’t there and racism wasn’t f–king all that real. You know it.”
The 39-year-old mother of six has since taken to Instagram to apologize for her insensitive comments. "During the last RHOA Reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people," she wrote. "Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country's history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination."
She added: "I believe that social media has made a centuries-old issue more real. Before social media, the public simply observed the news. Now, the public actively participates and has an opportunity to take action – in real time."
