Here is what she said:
“Hi everyone! I wanted to quickly post this to clarify and apologize for a tweet that has caused some offense. I recently tweeted that I was conflicted about choreographed dances in hospitals that have been making the rounds, I tweeted that although I believe healthcare workers deserve a break I was unsure about the time consuming practice; these particular dances seemed complicated, from what I’ve seen in the media hospitals are understaffed & staff is in dire need of sleep.
I wanted to hear everyone’s take before I formed an opinion because I was slightly confused . However that momentary confusion was tone deaf and unwarranted. I don’t work in a hospital, I don’t know what the frontliners are going through. Frankly I don’t even get to have an opinion on this. Although I have made it a point to thank them in my social media and other media outlets in the recent past: let me say it here again: THANK YOU. And that I vehemently apologize for any offense caused what so ever. I am in absolutely no position to question anything doctors and nurses do to take the edge off.
