Debby Ryan is taking the high road and claiming full responsibility for her poor judgment. After the Disney starlet was arrested for driving under the influence, she took to Twitter to ask for forgiveness from her young fans. Way to turn it around!
Debby Ryan, 22, is sorry and wants the world to know! The ‘Jessie’ star was booked for a DUI on April 13. And it may not have been her most shining moment, but her sincere tweet to her 4 million followers was the perfect way to address the issue and win our hearts! It’s how you act after the mistake that matters right?
The former, Suite Life of Zack and Cody star is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars on Disney right now, but that doesn’t mean she can’t screw up from time to time. Deb was let off easy after her felony charge was knocked down to a misdemeanor, but she’s definitely taking the incident seriously. Immediately after making a $100K bail, she took to Twitter to express her regrets. “Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgement,” she tweeted.
Although the Radio Rebel star may be of legal, drinking age, she understands illegally driving while intoxicated doesn’t set the right example for her teen audience.”I recognize that I am a role model and have always worked hard to set a good example for my millions of fans. I am so sorry to disappoint everyone,” she continued.

Deb was pulled over around 11pm on April 13, after slamming her 2016 Audi into a Mercedes. And after the other driver claimed to be injured by the crash, law enforcement had no choice but to perform a field sobriety test. When she blew a .11, instead of the legal limit of .08, she was arrested and booked.
The Disney Channel actress has been in the hot seat before, when she received a load of backlash after speaking about her abusive past, but let’s be honest here, Debby isn’t the only celeb to have a run in with the law, and certainly not the first Disney star. From Miley, to Demi, and even Zac Efron, at this point it’s a little common to trip at least once.
But after seeing that heartfelt tweet, we’re thinking that Deb has definitely learned her lesson. And she’ll definitely think twice before getting behind the wheel after having a couple of drinks at the next Hollywood bash.
Tell us HollywoodLifers, do you forgive Debby?
