Reality star Kailyn Lowry is apologizing for a comment in the previews for this week's Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 25 that many felt was racist.
Lowry, 22 apparently told baby daddy Jo Rivera, 21, that “little white boys don’t get their hair cut like that,” in regard to their four-year-old son Isaac.
Rivera is of Puerto Rican descent, while Kailyn is Caucasian.
Many eyebrows were raised by Kailyn Lowry's racist comment when it first hit the web, and that didn't seem to faze her in the slightest at first.
“Bahahahahahaha ok, im not racist,” she tweeted immediately after, seemingly blaming he comment on MTV editing and adding, “Gotta make good tv somehow!”
Sure, the network wants you to watch TV online, but those are her words. She likely meant no ill will, but it's hard to pin that on MTV, and she knows it.
Now, the mom of Isaac and 10-month-old Lincoln (with husband Javi Marroquin, whose ethnic roots are also Latin-American) is apologizing for real.
“I already know what I said was wrong,” Lowry wrote on Twitter, “it completely came out the wrong way too. This is weighing heavy on me. Trust that….”
