"OMG I'm so upset that a quick joke I made on Insta story has had such an effect on some people," she wrote.

"I just don't think before I speak and I say stupid things a lot."

"I don't want to take away from the seriousness of the movement as I am an absolute supporter especially since I was exposed to SO much of it in LA. Sorry sincerely... I'm just a goose sometimes."

She also added sad face and love heart emojis, so you know she's serious.
