Tila Tequila has some apologizing to do. A day after the reality star was kicked out of the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house for the offensive Nazi comments she made in 2013, she released a statement apologizing for her past words.
Tila Tequila, 33, is blaming her offensive statement about Adolf Hitler on her past drug addiction. Back in 2013, the reality star made some offensive comments about Nazis and those words have come back haunt her. Tila is now apologizing for her past remarks after being kicked out of the Celebrity Big Brother house. Read her statement on the issue here.
A day after Tila was admitted into the Celebrity Big Brother house, she was immediately kicked out. The reason? Producers of the show found out about the time in Dec. 2013 when Tila praised Hitler for being “a brilliant artist.” Once that information was known, show producers immediately kicked her out of the house and off the show.
Hours after the 33-year-old gathered her bearings, she released a public statement through her representative regarding the matter. Tila apologized for her offensive comments. She said:
“Back in 2013 I made a statement about Hitler not being a bad person, and immediately realized soon after that I had made a terrible mistake that would ultimately come back to haunt me. During that time I had been suffering from severe depression, and drug addiction for many years prior to that. I also attempted to commit suicide in 2012, and overdosed on prescription pills. I wanted to die. I felt worthless, and unloved as that pain continued to grow causing me to further spiral out of control. Losing touch of myself, and reality. It was absolutely the lowest point I had ever reached in my life, and today I am truly sorry to everyone that I may have hurt along my self-destructive path. I have made many mistakes that I am definitely not proud about, but I am only a flawed human who is trying my best to be a better person than I was in the past. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, wreckless, and selfish actions and I hope that everyone can forgive me for the pain that I may have caused. I want to be a good role model for my daughter because I don’t want her to go through what I have had to endure. I hope that I will be given a second chance at life to make things right again. We all make mistakes in life, and I have unfortunately made many in the public eye. Although I cannot do much to change my past mistakes now, I can however, try to make things right from this moment forward, and be the best person that I can be. I am in no way, shape or form a racist nor antisemitic, and absolutely 100% not a Nazi supporter. It was a careless mistake I made in 2013 while suffering severe depression, drug addiction, and suicidal. That is not the woman have grown up to be today, and the loving mother that I have become. I humbly ask for forgiveness from everyone I may have hurt or offended. I just want a second chance at life to start over, and be given a chance to fix my wrongs. It will be a work in progress, but I want to do this so that my daughter will be proud of me one day, and have a positive, strong role model in her life and that starts with me. I hope that Celebrity Big Brother will give me a second chance.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should the producers at Celebrity Big Brother give Tila a second chance?
