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.
On August 19th, Laura followed up her written apology with a video apology
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."
Tbh like Laura Lee saying she’s sorry for stuff she “retweeted in 2012” in her apology video... sis you wrote those tweets yourself they weren’t retweets stop trying to kid anyone— chris (@chrischree) August 20, 2018
Not even 1 minute into Laura Lee’s new video and I clicked out. She’s not sincere when it comes to apologies. She talks about the shit she retweeted but won’t acknowledge how she said shit from her very own account. @Laura88Lee— Damon (Diva) Nez (@damonnez) August 20, 2018

Not totally convinced that Laura Lee is actually sorry after watching her apology video. Also, she kept saying that she retweeted those hurtful tweets. Ummm no girl, those were your own tweets, those were your words.— rkg (@ravkaurgill) August 20, 2018
I have to say I love following the current drama of Laura Lee, that's mind blowing how things can explode. Fucking hilarious. Her apology was fake AF. Not even 5mn. Fake crying. Lies. Cuts in the video. Come on. She doesn't even try to save herself. 🤦♀️— Audrey Samandler (@audreysamandler) August 20, 2018
