Just like the rest of the world, Hannah Brown has been quarantined and is all over social media out of pure boredom probably. When she went live on Instagram, no one knew what was about to happen. Hannah has well over three million followers on Instagram, so a lot of people saw this video. She was singing the song, “Rockstar” by DaBaby. She was singing pretty loudly and when the n-word came out, that was that. This happened on Saturday of last week.

On Sunday, Brown took to social media to give an apology to her fans. “I owe you all a major apology. There is no excuse, and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt that I have caused. I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better.”
She got a lot of backlash from the video and her fans posted, “You should offer a sincere apology that shows the gravity of the situation.” Another wrote, “Your apology shows your white privilege.” Brown also promotes a brand that she puts all over social media and they made a statement saying, “We could not have predicted what happened on her Instagram.”
She has not lost any of her endorsements or partnerships, but fans are continuing to protest about how she should lose them. There are some former cast members from The Bachelor that have been speaking up about Brown as well. Bekah Martinez said, “It’s a word that holds so much historical weight that the black community is still healing from…so no, it’s not cool to just sing it along the lyrics of a song especially not on your platform with millions of followers.”
Rachel Lindsay, the only black lead in Bachelor history posted, “To be honest, I’m tired. I’m so tired of feeling like I have to be the one to say something,” Lindsay said on her IGTV. “It’s not an opportunity to call someone out, it’s not necessarily an opportunity to drag them, it’s an opportunity to maybe educate them. … I thought, ‘Let me challenge this person to use their platform because last night it was used in a different way, so let me challenge them to use it in a better way.’ Maybe it was a mistake, maybe they didn’t realize the intention behind it … so let me give them opportunity to now use their platform to correct that mistake. I am personally hurt and offended that I gave someone the opportunity to do that and it wasn’t done. Now, I understand that an apology was made, but when I know what could have been done, when I know what I challenged someone to do … they refused to do it, or they did not do it.”
