Gina has now returned to Instagram to issue a second apology.

“In song or in real life, the words that I spoke, should not have been spoken. I grew up loving the Fugees and Lauryn Hill. I thoughtlessly sang along to the lyrics of a favorite song, and even worse, I posted it,” Gina writes. “The word I sang, carries with it a legacy of hurt and pain that I cannot even imagine.”

Gina continued: What consequences I face for my actions, today none will be more hurtful than the personal remorse I feel. Watching my own video playing back at me, has shaken me to my core. It is humiliating that this has to be a public lesson but it is indeed a much deserved lesson.

“I feel so deeply protective and responsible to the community of color but I have let this community down,” Gina concluded. “I have some serious learning and growing to do and I am so deeply sorry for the pain I have caused.”
