Gregg Sulkin is saying he’s sorry. Bella Thorne’s boyfriend apologized to his fans after a caption on one of his Snapchat photos featured the N-word. However, it’s not his fault! Here’s what we know.
Bella Thorne‘s boyfriend is speaking out amidst some pretty serious controversy! The Disney doll’s sweetie, Gregg Sulkin, 23, had to explain why the N-word came up on his Snapchat account. But he’s making it clear he wasn’t behind the egregious word that captioned a photo of himself and his 17-year-old girlfriend.
A selfie of the Faking It star surfaced on his personal account on Sept. 18. What could have been an ordinary photo of himself and girlfriend Bella took a nasty turn when the line “What up n—a” appeared on the photo. WHAT?
Gregg claims he was the victim of hacking after his phone was stolen.”Unfortunately my social media accounts were hacked yesterday and my phone was stolen,” he tweeted on Sept. 19. “Things were posted to my account that I find appalling and unacceptable.”

“I believe that being part of a religious minority myself, racism is an ignorance that I do not and will not tolerate in my life,” he added. “I would like to apologize to my fans and anyone that was offended by the postings that were unfortunately beyond my control.” Bella came to his defense. She tweeted, “Omg Gregg lost his phone whoever is tweeting obvi isn’t him.”
The pair quickly shook off the hacking incident but encountered more trouble the next day when their flight to London had an accident. “Our flight crashed into a fence this morning so we had to get off and wait for another flight,” Bella shared. She continued, “So Virgin gets into an accident and leaves us stranded at the airport for 14 hours with no where to rest and no other options for flight.”
But all is well. They made it to London in time for the Topshop show where Bella was seated in the front row alongside Vogue editor Anna Wintour. A happy ending after a nasty hacking!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Gregg was right to apologize even though he was hacked? Let us know!
