Listen, I have NEVER been homophobic in my fucking life. I love gay people as they love me. Yesterday I called a young man a “faggot” For disrespecting me. And for that, to the LGBT community I sincerely apologize. However if I feel disrespected and that someone hit below the belt, whether they are gay or not, I’m going to return the same energy. I’m trying to control my anger at this point in my career By being more positive, but just like anybody else, it’s a growing process. I ask that the LGBT 🏳️🌈 gives respect as they want it. If you feel as if you can’t forgive me and I am still canceled on your watch I totally understand 🌈 Still Love you guys.
”However if I feel disrespected and that someone hit below the belt, whether they are gay or not, I’m going to return the same energy.”

The comedian later said that she had nothing to do with getting the four men removed from the flight.
She wrote on her Instagram account:
“Look y’all I’m not racist and never have I ever been… We have Muslims in my family however I was totally unaware of the different types of Muslim so yes I admit I’m ignorant to the facts so teach me.”
Moore also wrote:
“I got no one put off the f#####g plane… I didn’t even say s### to anyone else on the f#####g plane about how I felt. Again I’m sorry to all Muslims… deeply sorry.”
