As per Thethings.com, last year, a Black fan asked Shawn why he has never addressed the comments. To which, he said, “I just think that a lot of things just need to be moved on from, but I also think that the things that were saw, like I had friends when I was 14 who would like take my phone and like post things of them because they thought it was funny that I had like 2,000 followers and it was a big thing, and they’d post photos of themselves. And at the time, I was just like not thinking about it. I had no idea I was going to have 50 million followers, which doesn’t make it any better.”

Shawn Mendes added, “But yeah, totally, I apologize for everything insensitive that I said in the past. But with that being said, yeah, I think that’s not my personality.”

Shawn Mendes also apologized on social media by putting an Instagram story which reads,”I posted some racially insensitive comments on social media when I was younger, and I am so sorry. I apologize wholeheartedly for what was said & understand how offensive those posts were. There is no place for comments like that, and those words do not represent who I am. I stand for complete inclusivity, equality and love.”

Even after Shawn Mendes’s apology, he is going through hate comments on Twitter. Have a look at such tweets.
