Currently, Shawn Mendes with a new love Camila Cabello tour in North America.
In a recent Q&A interview, Shawn Mendes has responded to a black fan who asked a question about his racist tweet in the past, where he used the N-word and other offensive statements.
The fan asked:
“Why has it never been acknowledged?. We get a lot of hate for us supporting you, knowing that this has been, like, your past. And not to say that this is you now, or anything like that, it’s just really important for us to know, like, how you are?”
‘Senorita’ singer responded:
“I just think that a lot of things just need to be moved on from. But I also think that the things that were saw, like I had friends when I was 14 who would, like, take my phone and, like, post things of them. Because they thought it was funny that I had like 2,000 followers and it was this big thing, and they’d post photos of themselves
At the time I was just, like, not thinking about it. I had no idea I was going to have 50 million followers. Which doesn’t make it any better, but um, yeah, totally. I mean, I apologize for everything insensitive I said in the past, but with that being said, yeah, I think that’s not my personality.”
