CJ Perry has issued an apology after coming under fire on social media for recent controversial comments.

A fan recently replied to a post from CJ Perry where they wrote that it was “hard to keep going when you’re homeless. Everyone ignores you. Everything is a reminder of what you once had.”

In a response, Perry wrote “You have a device to tweet from.” The seemingly unsympathetic response drew a huge amount of criticism from fans, who accused the star of being uncaring, writing that there’s a huge amount of difference between being homeless and having a phone.

As a result, Perry has now issued an apology, discussing her own past homelessness, adding that she was “grateful that she had a phone to tweet from.”

“Let me clear something up about something going around about a tweet. Most people don’t know that I was homeless 2 different times chasing big dreams. I have plenty of empathy for the homeless because I was homeless. But I was grateful because I had a phone to tweet from,”




Perry went on to issue a full apology writing that it was never her intention to offend anyone.

“I am sorry to the people that took offence when I said “At least you have a device.” As weird as it sounds it was coming from a place of love and trying to encourage him to not give up. I understand my Eastern European upbringing and motivational speech did not resonate with with many of you. As a kid and teenager I had shoes thrown at me, I was whipped by my ballet teachers because they “believed in me.”

I apologise if I seemed insensitive and caused more damage. I truly was trying to motivate in the way I know how. Which I failed and I apologise for. When people do that to me it always helped but I see it did not help in this situation. I am sorry for that.”
