Jess Hilarious faced backlash on social media after she shared a video last week in which she claimed that she felt threatened by four Sikhs who were on the same flight as her.
It was later reported that Jess had actually had the guys kicked off the flight, which turned out not to be the case - but Jess had already gone too far. Following the incident, Jess doubled down on her remarks which led to social media 'canceling' the 'Rel' star.
It appears now that Jess has had a change of heart and has since issued an apology for her ignorant remarks.
"I'm not sure if these particular individuals that were on the plane are aware of my actions by now. Either way, I would love to apologize personally to them first, for my insensitive and ignorant behavior," the comedian said. "Sadly, I had no knowledge of the tragedy in New Zealand and so after my video, which doesn't in any way excuse my behavior. I already know that. Ain't nothing excuses it. But it opened up my eyes to a matter of ignorance as a habit that usually invokes hate," she said in the video.
"I refuse to teach spread or be an advocate for hatred. I just want to make people laugh. Bear with me. I'm still learning. And when I say, I'm still learning, I was unaware of Sikhs, as well. A lot of them reached out to me, educated me on who they are and what they stand for and how they help the world in different ways. I didn't know that. I'm ignorant to a lot of sh*t."

Her boyfriend, Kountry Wayne also spoke out in defense of Jess shortly after her apology.
Should Jess be forgiven?
