Meghan Trainor is apologizing for her words after her expletive-filled podcast condemning educators went viral, where the singer definitively states “f— teachers.”
Trainor is now saying her impassioned remarks were not indicative of how she really feels.
While recording an episode of her show “Workin’ on Motherhood” with brother Ryan and guest Trisha Paytas, Trainor commented on the current state of school systems in America right now, pointing out she had chosen to homeschool her 2-year-old son, Riley.
“F— that. Everyone on TikTok is,” Trainor told Paytas of the decision to homeschool.
Both women have amassed millions of followers on the social media app.
“They’re like, this is what it’s like to have a kid in school in America. I have a bullet-proof backpack? I was like, ‘f— all that.”
When Paytas disclosed she had been bullied by teachers when she was a student, Trainor added, “f— teachers, dude.”
Despite her statement, Trainor shared her appreciation for the homeschool teachers that she knows, given her son’s schooling.
In addition to their son, Trainor and her husband, actor Daryl Sabara, are expecting a second child.
“There are so many teachers out here that are so nice and kind and that will come to your house,” Trainor told Paytas, of her experience. Trainor also suggested that teenagers in high school that are homeschooled are given more opportunities to learn “real-life things.”
“Let’s save our kids,” Trainor told Paytas.
