Stassi Schroeder took to Instagram on Sunday to apologize for a past incident in which she misled police in an effort to get a black castmate into legal trouble.
‘Racially insensitive comments from my past have resurfaced,’ Schroeder – who has been vocal as of late about her support for the Black Lives Matter movement – said in a statement on the site.
‘It is important that I continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better,’ the New Orleans-born reality star, 31, said. ‘I have grown significantly from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the hurt I caused.’

She directly apologized to Stowers for her actions in hopes of landing her in trouble with the authorities, admitting that she didn’t consider how severe the consequences could have been.
‘I also want to address my former castmate, Faith Stowers,’ said Stassi, who cooked up the scheme with castmate Kristen Doute. ‘My emotions over something that happened between our friends outweighed my logic, and there is no excuse for that.
‘I did not recognize then the serious ramifications that could have transpired because of my actions. What I did to Faith was wrong. I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness.’
Schroeder said she was sorry to ‘anyone else that feels disappointed in’ her, and vowed to focus her efforts on being more conscientious and evolving ‘into a more educated person.’

Stower recalled how Schroeder and Doute called the authorities after seeing a report about an African American woman who was drugging and robbing men around LA.
‘There was this article where there was an African-American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. I guess this woman was robbing people.
‘And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview.’
