‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Actor Israel Broussard Issues Apology Over ‘Insensitive’ Tweets
He has since taken to Twitter to tell fans he is 'deeply sorry'.
While everyone is still obsessing over Netflix’s newest rom-com To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, the same can’t be said for one of its male leads.
Israel Broussard, who plays Josh in the movie, has apologised on Twitter after fans reposted comments he made back in 2016 on the platform, including ones where he called the Black Lives Matter movement a “division”.
He also implied that he wouldn’t be up for playing a gay character, leading fans to declare him ‘cancelled’. The actor has since taken to social media to issue an apology for his past comments, writing:
"I am deeply sorry for my inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media," Israel wrote. "I take full responsibility for my actions and I sincerely apologize. This has been a pivotal life lesson for me. I am dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself."
This has become an all too common occurrence among young celebrities over the past year, with likes of Zoella, Jack Maynard and James Arthur having been called out for things they’d said before their rise to fame.
