Fans are calling Laura Lee out for not acknowledging racist tweets she personally wrote in a recent apology video.

On August 12th, Laura received backlash after tweets in which she mocked black people and asian people and ridiculoued Rob Kardashian's size. In one particular tweet, she joked about black people, who she called "Ni**as*, not being able to leave Compton. Laura initially posted an apology to twitter, in which she pledged to use this moment to work more closely with social justice organisations to help change the "awful realities" that her jokes related to.

In the apology video, Laura claimed that she had "retweeted" the insensitive comments, despite evidence showing she had tweeted the offensive messages herself.

Fans have since called out Laura for saying she "retweeted" offensive things, when she also tweeted offensive content herself.

"You wrote the tweets yourself they weren't retweets, stop trying to kid anyone," one fan wrote. Another said, "she's not sincere when it comes to apologises."
