After Brown said the N-word while singing to “Rockstar” on Instagram Live, fans called her out in the comments. She then posted a half-hearted apology while laughing on her Instagram.
“I did? I’m so sorry… No, I was singing… I’m so sorry,” she said.
Brown later posted a short apology on her Instagram story.
“I owe you all a major apology,” Brown wrote on her Instagram Story on May 17. “There is no excuse and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt I have caused. I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better.”

Rachel Lindsay, the first and only black lead in the Bachelor franchise, posted a long video to her Instagram IGTV page addressing the situation.
“I understand that an apology was made, but when I know what could have been done, when I know what I challenged someone to do, they did not do it. So I felt like I’ll use my platform to do it, because it’s easy to make a statement,” Lindsay said. “It’s easy to hide behind words. But when you’re bold enough to say the N-word on camera, on your platform… you need to be bold enough to use your face on camera and apologize in the same way that you said the word.”
