Billie Eilish and boyfriend Matthew Tyler Vorce under fire for racism

Matthew Tyler Vorce, Billie Eilish rumoured boyfriend, responds to his social media statements from a decade ago resurfacing.

The 29-year-old actor apologised for posts he made in 2011 and 2012 on Instagram Stories this week. “[Matthew was] accused of using the N-word, as well as making offensive statements about the Asian and LGTBQ+ communities,” according to E! News.

Vorce admitted that he had made the uncovered comments, and that he was truly sorry. “I’d like to [apologise] for some of the things I’ve said on social media in the past,” he said.

“I [apologise] for using nasty and irresponsible language, and I [recognise] how disrespectful those comments are. That doesn’t matter if it was a lyric, a quote, or just me being st*pid. I’m embarrassed and truly remorseful for using them in any circumstance,” the actor also remarked.

Before adding, “it is not how I was raised, and it is not what I stand for. I shouldn’t have used this language to begin with, and I won’t do it now. I’m very sorry for the pain I’ve caused. I accept full responsibility for my conduct and will continue to do so.”

Writing is therapeutic for me. I am of the opinion that Jollof rice is overrated and that Chelsea is the best football club in the world. Though a patriotic citizen, Canada is the aim in Jesus' name. An amateur techie and lifestyle enthusiast. I am not a role model.
