The Cuban-born singer faced criticism this week for a series of offensive posts she shared on her Tumblr page back in 2012, when she was a teenager.

One meme she re-posted shows a drawing of a crying Black child looking at a "closed" sign. The drawing asks the viewer to guess what the drawing is about. The correct answer is "KFC".

Some of the posts featured the N-word and Asian slurs. She reposted offensive memes that she probably thought were funny. Camila obviously never assumed she would one day be an international pop star.

On Wednesday, Cabello issued a lengthy apology online, expressing her remorse at the hurtful language she used when she was an "ignorant" youth.

"When I was younger I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of and will regret forever," the singer began.

"I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language, I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it."

Cabello went on to insist she is a changed woman: "I'm 22 now," she continued. "I'm an adult and I've grown and learned and am conscious and aware of the history and the pain it carries in a way I wasn't before.

"These mistakes don't represent the person I am or (the) person I've ever been. I only stand and have ever stood for love and inclusivity and my heart has never, even then, had an ounce of hate or divisiveness."

She concluded, "I can't say enough how deeply sorry and ashamed I feel, and I apologize again from the bottom of my heart."

Cabello's public apology comes almost four months after her boyfriend, fellow pop star Shawn Mendes, also apologized for similar racially-insensitive messages posted to his Twitter account back in 2013.

In his statement addressing the racist messages, Mendes blamed his friends using his phone to tweet out comments.

Gabrielle Union was let go as a judge on America's Got Talent after she made one too many complaints to bosses about the show's "toxic culture" on the set, according to WENN.com.

The outspoken 47-year-old actress served as a judge on the competition reality TV show this year, alongside Julianne Hough, who was also let go from the show in November.

According to Variety.com, numerous incidents left Union uncomfortable - such as when guest judge Jay Leno allegedly made a racially insensitive joke while visiting the show's offices.

"Leno made a crack about a painting on display in a hallway of the show's Simon Cowell, surrounded by his dogs. Leno joked that the pets looked like something one would find 'on the menu at a Korean restaurant'," according to four people who were present at the time of Leno's wisecrack.

According to Variety, Union asked producers to report the incident to Human Resources but, following a conversation with a NBC executive, the matter was dropped.

Other incidents Union complained about included one involving a white male contestant, who wowed the audience with his quick changes between costumes. At one point, he donned dark make-up to look like the American singer Beyonce - which angered Union and caused her to object to the contestant being in the show.

The contestant was apparently still allowed to audition, but the audition was cut before the show aired.

The Variety report also claims that both Union and Hough (pictured) were consistently given "excessive notes on their physical experience," which had a big impact on their morale - particularly for Hough.

However, Hough, who wants to keep working in Hollywood, denied the claims in a statement to E! News, telling the outlet: "I had a wonderful time on America's Got Talent, I loved working with the cast, crew and producers. I am happy to continue my working relationship with NBC."

Meanwhile, NBC hit back at the report in their own statement, which read: "America’s Got Talent has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show.

"The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT’s enduring popularity. NBC and the producers take any issues on set seriously."

Union has yet to publicly respond to the allegations.

Dallas County Jail

Former Dallas cop Amber Guyger was convicted of murder in the fatal shooting of her neighbor, Botham Jean, in his own home.

A new mugshot was taken when Guyger was booked into the Dallas County Jail on Tuesday, following her conviction.

She will be held in jail until her sentencing hearing. She will then be transported to prison. The former cop was not allowed to post bond while her attorneys appeal her conviction.

The sentencing phase of Guyger's murder trial began on Tuesday afternoon.

Jurors heard from Jean's still-grieving mother and sister, who talked about his good character, his strong religious upbringing, and his life of service to others.

Prosecutors showed jurors racist text messages and social media posts written by Guyger, 31.

One text message was in reference to the Jan. 15, 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. holiday parade in Dallas, according to ABC affiliate WFAA 8 News.

"When does this end lol," a fellow cop texted Guyger.

"When MLK is dead… oh wait…" she responded.

"Just push them… or spray your pepper spray in that general area," she wrote, referring to the majority Black crowd at the parade.

In another text exchange, dated Sept. 4, 2018, someone texted Guyger about adopting a German Shepherd.

"Although she may be racist," the dog’s owner messaged Guyger.

"It's okay.. I'm the same," Guyger responded.

The jury will take Guyger's racist texts into consideration when deciding her punishment. Jurors will consider whether her racism was a factor when she shot Jean in cold blood in his apartment on Sept. 6, 2018.

Guyger faces a maximum of 99 years behind bars.
