As of this writing the video has been removed, but the main comment in the video that caused the recent uproar was:

[quote]I would never in my life call no transexual, no – whatever you are – I’m not calling no man who was born a man when they first got into this world, no disrespect to nobody, a fucking woman… you can act like a lady, but you will never be a woman.”[/quote]

In a new 11-minute apology video, released earlier today, Jasmine explains herself and the mindset she was in during that time. “I just came off shoot off at the mouth,” she explains, “and me shooting off at the big mouth, I said and hurt a lot of people and I did not mean that.”

Watch the entire apology video below with an open and forgiving mind. We all say the wrong things at times, especially in the heat of the moment. Remember the words of RuPaul, “Everybody say love!”

The lesson we can all take from this: The things we say and do can come back to bite us in the butt later, so be mindful and think about how what you say and do can hurt others and yourself.
