Fashionista Rachel Nguyen should have been a little bit more careful with her most recent post on her blog, That's Chic.
The twenty-three-year-old glamor queen posed for a photo shoot in front of a Jewish mausoleum at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery earlier this week. If the scenery wasn't distasteful enough, Nguyen published her post on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
After deleting the post, she took to her blog Wednesday to tell readers just how sorry she was, saying she owes "a big humble apology" for her "f*ck it" attitude.
"I’m ashamed of my own ignorance," the blogger wrote on Wednesday about her insensitivity to the 6 million Jews who perished in WWII. "I’d like to apologize to everyone and in particular anyone whose life or legacy was touched by the Holocaust. While I can’t take back this offense, I promise to better educate myself and be more sensitive going forward. I’m really sorry."
On Monday, which happened to be the official day of remembrance for those who perished in the Holocaust, Nguyen published the photo shoot, along with text expressing that she doesn't "give a f*ck."
Apparently, Nguyen didn't realize that her post was "really poorly timed," while she was just being "fun and irreverent," not thinking much "about the denomination of the graves" behind her.
She also wrote on Twitter
about her satisfaction with the attention her blog has received since the cringe-worthy post. The Tweet has since been deleted.
