Over the weekend, Kathryn was on a day trip with her friend visiting local spots around South Carolina. She was sharing videos from her trip with her kids and playing with animals. She even filmed herself at a church where a Netflix show was filmed and offered her money to fix up the property, which many found to be incredibly tone-deaf given she was just accused of being racist and saying in the days after George Floyd’s murder.
Honestly I use that emoji all the time because it looks silly and awkward the way the way it is sitting. I was messaging is anonymous I did not know who…boy/girl black/white. https://t.co/IZds56gqn3

Kathryn is still receiving heat for sending a black radio host, Mika Gadsen, a monkey emoji during an argument over a Trump Boat Parade. The reality star promised to explain her self but stayed silent for over two weeks.
On Sunday, she decided to finally say something on her Twitter. She wrote, “It’s hard to know the right words to say but I will not be silent. My black brothers and sisters I hear you, I see you, and I am with you. ????”
She continued, “Honestly I never realized the monkey emoji was racist. Obviously I was wrong. I’m sorry. The conversation I had was distorted and completely taken out of context and now I’m being called all these things that I am not. I really appreciate people who correct me and teach me because without them I might have been repeating mistakes for a long time. Honestly I use that emoji all the time because it looks silly and awkward the way the way it is sitting. I was messaging is anonymous I did not know who…boy/girl black/white. I hear you, I see you and I’m sorry. For the fans that I have offended, I’m sorry. For the fans that have supported me, thank you.”
As The Blast previously reported, Kathryn has been feeling the consequences of her actions and recently lost a lucrative job.
