Gabriel Zamora Apologizes for Saying N-Word in Past Racist Tweet
First Laura Lee apologized for past racist tweets, and now BFF Gabriel Zamora has issued and apology of his own.
Around the same time that fans uncovered Laura’s old tweets, people discovered that the 25-year-old used the N-word on Twitter back in 2012.
He first went private in response to the backlash, but then returned to the social media site to apologize for his “ignorant post.”
I’m reposting it because the responses got dark and ignorant. I’m taking a break from twitter. I now remember why I didn’t like it. People want you to be honest but don’t always wanna hear the truth ❤️ pic.twitter.com/y5rb3o6tXG

But the racist tweet wasn’t the only thing people were upset over. The beauty guru seemingly shaded ex-friend Jeffree Star by posting a picture of himself, Laura, Manny Mua and Nikita Dragun giving the middle finger and captioning it, “Bitch is bitter because without him we’re doing better.”
He also addressed this controversy in another apology in which he said sorry to the YouTubers in the photo and the beauty community in general.

He writes, “The photo was supposed to be funny and I took it upon myself to tweet it with text they didn’t know I was going to say. I acted out of emotion and pettiness and it was solely my tweet and my words and no one else’s.”
Manny thanked Gabriel for the apology and explained that he initially didn’t read the caption, which is why he favorited it at first. Once he realized the implication, he removed the favorite and asked his friend to take the post down.
Once I was notified about the caption from you all, I removed my like and asked gabby to take it down as the photo was supposed to be a fun recreation and NOTHING more.

Like Laura, Gabriel says he “will work on being a better person every day” and promises that he will show his remorse with more than just words.
