What were El Darby’s racist tweets?

Elle, who posts family video blogs on YouTube, was forced to turn to racist tweets she wrote as a teenager.

In one tweet from 2011, an influencer wrote, “I hope this Polish t *** who was riding my bus this morning almost knocked me off my feet because I didn’t crash.”

Another read: “Why are foreigners persecuting me? I don’t speak your way, you idiots. ” and the third said, “I just hate Poles and Indians.”

Another text says, “This bus is sweaty and stinks of Indians.”

Elle also wrote, “I miss my laptop a lot. Wish this stupid charger from HK (Hong Kong) to hurry up. Come on, damn it, you’re upsetting me. “

In other tweets, the influencer made bold and offensive comments, including using the word “n” and hinting at animal cruelty.

Fans took to social media to express their disgust, and pointed out that old accounts of her fiancé Connor Swift contained similar hate words.

What has El Darby said since then?

The influencer said she was ashamed of her old tweets, and the couple jointly apologized, saying that they were “mad at themselves”.

Speaking to Instagram, the couple wrote: “Christmas and New Years are traditionally a time for reflection, and so we decided to take the time to look at both of our stories on social media.

“We are ashamed to admit that we did not like what we found.

“We were both shocked, surprised and devastated by some of the language used in our very old tweets, in particular over a decade ago.

“We feel that everyone is responsible for our mistakes and we try to take responsibility for our actions, especially those that do not portray us in our best light.”

The post said, “These comments are not a reflection of who we are, adults, or who we were at the time they were made, and are not in line with what we stand for.

“We are very angry with ourselves and ashamed that our behavior has hurt some of you who have supported our family for so long.

“We can only wish your forgiveness.”

Fans weren’t convinced that Darby should have known better, and that the sheer number of comments were “shocking and disappointing.”

One fan said, “For her age, she was old enough not to say such disgusting things. That doesn’t sound like a single tweet either. It is not normal”.

One angry follower said, “It’s not even like what she tweeted without thinking, literally HUNDREDS of shocking tweets and it’s so disappointing.”

And the third said, “I’m really shocked,” and the other wrote, “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Elle management was contacted for comment.
