Michella Rodriquez has issued an apology following comments she made regarding ethnic minorities in Hollywood.
Discussing movie roles in footage which was since made public, the Fast and Furious actress said: "Because of this whole 'minorities in Hollywood' thing… it's so stupid. Sop stealing all the white people's superheroes. Make up your own."
The comments which sparked furious backlash led the 36-year-old to admit she suffered a foot-in-mouth moment and didn't intend to cause offence, saying: "I have a tendency to speak without a filter- sorry about all that."
Taking to Facebook to clarify her comments, the star said: "What I really meant was that… I think there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology."
Determined to play down the controversy and explain her stance, Michelle went on to say: "I think that people should stop being lazy and people should make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology."
Hmmm, we wonder if Michelle's explanation for her ill-advised comments will be enough to silence her critics!
