I’m sorry Amy, I had no idea you’d see this! I understand that this can be seen as negative but I really wasn’t trying to be! I was just curious and decided to see what you’d look like with my face tune app and I didn’t realize that it was that bad! I’m sorry for my ignorance and I will take it down! I have no right to make people feel bad about themselves! Love you Amy both of your movies are amazing!
The mea culpa in an Instagram caption:
Well like I said in my comment, I’m sorry Amy! It was unfair to do that to you. I didn’t think much about it when I first posted the pic. I’ve seen a lot of people photoshopping celebrities so I didn’t think mine would even be a blimp [sic]. I spent like 30 min making the photo and I should have never posted it! I’m glad people called out this post! That was a dick move on my end. Well all I can do is apologize, I’m sorry.
