Sophie has released a statement denying the allegations that she used a racial slur in a video posted by Joe Jonas’ fitness trainer early Tuesday morning. “I used the word ‘motherf*ckers’ in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested,” the actress clarified in a statement to The Cut. “I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word.”
Sophie wasn’t the only one to be Twitter cancelled, but even Joe Jonas came under fire for laughing at the alleged use of the n-word. With Katy Perry’s comment about Barack Obama and Kendall Jenner’s brown-faced photoshoot, this just adds to the list of stars being racially insensitive. Quickly after the video was posted, Twitter reacted to how appalling the comment was and how Joe’s laughter makes him just as guilty as Sophie.
