Meghan Trainor has apologized for insulting teachers during a recent episode of her podcast.
During last weeks Workin’ On It discussion with her husband Daryl Sabara and YouTuber Trisha Paytas, the superstar singer/songwriter said, “F**k teachers, dude.”
Following severe backlash from her remark, Trainor took to TikTok on Sunday (4.23) in order to explain that she got “fired up” when talking about the American education system and school shootings and “got angry” at specific teachers who bullied her at school.
“Teachers of TikTok and teachers of the world, I recently said ‘F teachers’ on the podcast and it’s not how I feel. I was fired up because we were talking about how sending your kid to school here in America is so horrific,” said the pop songstress.
“I did not mean (to say that about) all teachers. I love teachers, I fight for teachers. I think they have the hardest job and they are the most underpaid. They are the most unappreciated when they literally raise all of us. I don’t want to make excuses, I just want to (say) I am so sorry. I am so sorry to any teachers I made feel bad and I will remind myself that my words definitely could have a consequence and I will be more careful.”
