Leigh-Anne Pinnock Addresses Andre Gray's Racist Tweets
Back in 2016, Gray came under fire for racist tweets that he shared about Black women in 2021. During the documentary, Pinnock and Gray discuss the tweets that were picked up by the press after the pair had been dating for a few months. Pinnock explains that Gray wrote the tweets years ago, and that she knows now that they were "a blatant example of colourism", admitting that seeing them made her feel "a bit sick".
In response, Gray says: "This is what happens when you are kids, you do become a product of your environment. So whatever you were around every day — and you're not educated on it or exposed to why it is wrong — then it kind of sticks." He adds that there's no excuse for what he said, and that he felt embarrassed and ashamed once they surfaced. "I've made that mistake and I have learnt and educated myself and grew up to understand how offensive and how wrong it was in what I did," he says.
