Greer Blitzer apologized for his past words.
“In the past, I have made some uneducated, ignorant and frankly, false comments on my social media accounts,” the 24-year-old wrote. “In particular, in 2016, I used false arguments on Twitter to defend a student wearing a Blackface costume. Tupac For halloween.”
Blitzer continued, “I am deeply sorry to the people I have hurt, especially those in the Black community, not because these screenshots have resurfaced but because I have shared that harmful opinion.”
The contestant, a medical sales representative from Houston, went on to say that her previous comments did not match her current self.
“Time and age do not excuse my actions, but this does not reflect who I am today,” she wrote. “I do not support or tolerate the damaging views and behaviors I shared during that period of my life and will forever regret making those offensive remarks.”
