CLC’s Sorn Apologizes Following Backlash Over Racist Image And Controversial Post

CLC’s Sorn has written an apology after coming under fire for posting a photo containing racist imagery and appearing to be dismissive of fans’ concerns.

On December 19, Sorn posted a photo on social media that includes a friend wearing a racist mask. Following comments about the racist caricature, she deleted the photo.

She also uploaded an image of herself on which she wrote, “Sometimes some ppl just gotta chill, I’m not stupid,” with an emoji of a hand making a V. This led to a large backlash on social media, with Sorn’s name trending worldwide on Twitter at No. 1 as fans expressed their disappointment over what appeared to be a dismissal of their concerns and offense over the photo.

Sorn later posted the following apology on Twitter:

Hey everyone, in light of recent events, I sincerely apologize for my actions. Specifically, I am sorry for being culturally insensitive and in no way was I trying to intentionally offend anyone. In hindsight, I am realizing how this photo could have offended others. I am genuinely sorry, and will reflect upon my mistakes. I am not asking for anyone’s forgiveness but I am writing this message to say that I know how much people are hurt by the picture I posted last night. I understand that people are allowed to feel and I am no way expecting the people I offended to forgive me. Sorry guys and I’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again in the future. Sorry for disappointing you Cheshire.

As the apology did not address the issue of Sorn’s apparent initial response to the photo, a fan asked her to apologize for this. Sorn replied, “That was a post I posted of me ranting about something else which has nothing to do with this situation. Sorry for the confusion :’(.” Her reply has garnered mixed reactions, with many fans expressing doubt over her explanation and asking for further details.
