In the video, Colleen spoke about various topics, including a video of her and her sister from 14 years ago in which she does Latina characters “completely based on racial stereotypes.”

“It is not funny, and it is completely hurtful. I am so ashamed and embarrassed that I ever thought this was okay,” she said.

She also discussed a video from 12 years ago about an overweight woman next to her on a flight.

“That is not the woman I am today. I’m such a huge advocate for women…the fact that I talked negatively about someone who is overweight is absolutely disgusting to me.”

She also discussed a story about her dog being put down after biting her as a child, which was seen by some as insensitive.

“To anyone and everyone who was hurt or offended by the statements I made when I was younger, I am so, so sorry. I hope you all can see that the person I am today is so far from the person I was a decade ago.”
