Meghan Trainor, known for her hit songs like “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Movin’,” has found herself in hot water after making controversial comments on her podcast, “Workin’ on Motherhood,” about teachers.
During the podcast episode, Trainor expressed her frustration with the current state of school systems in America and revealed that she had chosen to homeschool her 2-year-old son, Riley. She used profanity and stated “f— that. Everyone on TikTok is,” while discussing the decision to homeschool.
Trainor also made the statement “f— teachers, dude” when guest Trisha Paytas disclosed that she had been bullied by teachers as a student.
After the episode went viral, Trainor received immense backlash from the public, with many expressing their disappointment and anger towards her comments. Some individuals, including teachers, pointed out the hard work and dedication that goes into educating children.
In response, Trainor took to TikTok to issue an emotional apology, acknowledging that her words could have consequences and promising to be more careful in the future.
“I don’t want to make excuses, I’m just so sorry. I’m so sorry to any teachers who I made feel bad. And I will remind myself that my words definitely could have a consequence, and I will be more careful. Love you all so much. I’m so sorry again. Thank you all for helping me,” she concluded, blowing a kiss to the camera.
While Trainor’s comments caused controversy and hurt, her apology shows that she is willing to learn and grow from her mistakes.
