I’m sorry that I offended a lot of people with the voice note that leaked yesterday. Listening back, I realise how stupid and demeaning those comments were and I’m really sorry. I’m grateful to people in my team and my three sisters and friends who reached out to correct me. I’m human. I’m learning. I promise to do better and I know my mother is not proud of me right now! As a professional in this industry, I’ve worked with so many talented sisters and I’ve always been very respectful. So I’m sorry for letting you and myself down. I have reached out to Amanda and apologised. Please forgive me too.
