An applicant for the Miss SA 2020 competition has learned the hard way that your past can come back to haunt you.
Bianca Schoombee has been made to apologise on Wednesday morning, after offensive Tweets posted to her account were dragged up overnight. The ‘cancel culture’ storm has been devastating.
Twitter investigators conducted a background check of her and find out that she was trolling people and using profanities to mock people, with their skin color and even calling some sluts.
Taking to Instagram Bianca said, she profusely apologizes for her remarks and she has changed now.
Crestfallen from the reaction, Bianca Schoombee posted an apology to her page earlier. The potential Miss SA contestant explained that she shared the sentiments when she was only 14, and admits to dealing with elements of her past through prayer. The 20-year-old was keen to stress she no longer holds these views:
“In light of recent events – the discovery of my Tweets from six years ago when I was 14 – I would like to profusely apologise for putting this out into the universe. However, I’d like to make you all aware I have grown as a person, and this is no longer what I stand for. I have dealt with my past through praying.”
“It’s important to forgive yourself and I hope South Africans can forgive me for these immature posts. I really do hope that you continue to support me and give me a second chance. I love you all, God Bless.”
