Meghan Trainor apologized for what she called “careless” statements regarding teachers.
The singer-songwriter said she was “fired up” over the recent spate of school shootings during a recent podcast discussion.
“We’re homeschooling our kids. Everyone on TikTok is like, ‘This is what it’s like having kids in America. I have a bulletproof backpack.’ I was like, ‘f— all that,’” she said during a conversation about parenthood on the April 19 episode of “Workin’ On It.”
After guest Trisha Paytas’ reflected on her negative experiences with educators and her concerns about bullying, Trainor remarked: “f— teachers, dude.”
Blowback was fast and furious, leading many to call Trainor out.
In one TikTok video, kindergarten teacher Kerregan Calhoun said, “To be disrespected like that is just so frustrating.”
Trainor — known for hits such as “All About That Bass,” “Lips” and “No” — addressed her remarks in a TikTok video on Sunday.
“Teachers of TikTok and teachers of the world, I recently said ‘F teachers’ on the podcast, and it’s not how I feel,” she said. “I was fired up because we were talking about how sending your kid to school here in America is so horrific. And what all of us have to go through, especially teachers, is not normal and not OK.”
