Meghan Trainor publicly apologised to teachers for passing controversial comments on her podcast.
“Teachers of TikTok and teachers of the world, I recently said ‘F teachers’ on the podcast and it’s not how I feel,” she said in a TikTok video. “I was fired up because we were talking about how sending your kid to school here in America is so horrific.”
She captioned it with, “I am sorry for being careless with my words. I LOVE teachers and I am here for you…Let’s work to make schools a better place together.”
During an episode of ‘Workin’ On It’, her joint podcast with hubby Daryl Sabara, she got into a conversation with guest Trisha Paytas about how dangerous it is to send kids to public schools with cases of mass shootings increasing rapidly.
“We’re homeschooling our kids,” she said. “Everyone on TikTok is like, ‘This is what it’s like having kids in America. I have a bulletproof backpack.’ I was like, f–k all that.” The YouTuber agreed with her and added that she was also concerned about bullies and teachers.
Trainor fired back immediately saying, “F–k teachers, dude.” She faced backlash for this statement thereafter.
Trainor also recently unveiled the bloopers video for ‘Mother’, her latest release. The video also revealed a sonogram of her second baby and some candid choreography with special guest Kris Jenner.
