Mackenzie said: “I’m still confused why I can’t get on and stay sorry from my heart.
“We need to get rid of racism and racial injustice, but I’m not racist.
“Cancel culture is too big, we’re canceling people left and right… But if she (Cheyenne) wants to hate me, she can. I said something ignorant.”
Mackenzie had also previously responded to a troll who called her “racist” during the star’s feud with Cheyenne Floyd.

The 26-year-old quickly clapped back at the troll and said: “If you think that then why are you following me and spending time out of your day on my page?
“It’s reasons like YOU we all can’t grow up and move forward.
“Also actually I don’t HAVE to like her. That’s the beauty of life.” She added.
In a Teen Mom episode, Mackenzie spoke with a social rights activist from Color Of Change to educate herself more on her racially insensitive comments.

She was asked: “What are some of the things you feel like you’ve learned since you said that?”

In January, Teen Mom fans labeled Mackenzie racist when she called Vice President Kamala Harris a “colored” woman on her Facebook page.

The mom wrote: “Sorry, no. There are a lot of amazing women in the world for my daughters to look up to and see as role models. Kamala Harris is not one of them.
“It blows my mind that out of all the amazing colored women in this world, that is the one who is making history.”
While Teen Mom viewers ripped Mackenzie for the comment, her co-star Cheyenne, 28, got on Twitter to encourage her followers to “educate.”
She tweeted: “It’s time to have a conversation, a form, something to educate and enlighten because ignorance is pervasive.”

Mackenzie lashed out at Cheyenne for “cutting off” contact with her after her comment and she said in an Instagram Live: “Cheyenne tweeted that I’m ignorant.
“I would’ve gone live with her, I would’ve gone on her podcast.
“I talked to Cheyenne, and I thought things were going to be amazing, but it was just a downward spiral from there.”
The Oklahoma native then said of her co-star: “I told Cheyenne, ‘I love you.’

“And her message back was ‘I have no sympathy for you. Welcome to day 1 of being uncomfortable because of the color of your skin.’”
Mackenzie added: “So if she hates me, that’s fine. That’s fine because I said something ignorant, but I messaged and told her that I love her.
“I said ‘I love you, I want to hold your hand and do this together with you.’ But she decided right then and there she’s done with me. Cut me off.”
This is not the first Teen Mom OG franchise racism scandal as Cheyenne’s baby daddy Cory Wharton’s girlfriend, Taylor Selfridge, was fired from Teen Mom OG last season for resurfaced racist tweets.
