Kathryn Dennis

When Southern Charm started, Kathryn Dennis was the outcast. She was the outcast for many seasons, which garnered some sympathy from viewers. Throughout all of her troubles, she became someone the fans rooted for.

After all the progress that viewers have seen, it was especially troubling to see Kathryn take a major step back recently. While she may have it all together with her custody drama and her sobriety, she made a major mistake in a conversation with a “fan.” And, of course, the screenshots came to light.

A Southern Charm viewer tweeted screenshots from an Instagram conversation with Kathryn. Among other things, Kathryn wrote “That’s how serious I take this” followed by a monkey emoji. The person who Kathryn was talking to is an African American woman. Of course, she took offense to that remark.

Once the screenshots went public, Kathryn apologized on social media. Kathryn tweeted, “I want to acknowledge that using a monkey emoji in my text was offensive, and from the bottom of my heart I sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone I hurt. Although the context was not my intention, there are no “if ands or buts” that excuse me… part 1.”

She followed that up with “Part 2: ….I did not give it thought, and it was and is wrong. I know I am not that person. I know and will do better.”

Kathryn was right about one thing- “there are no ‘ifs and or buts’ that excuse [her]” behavior. Screenshots live on forever. Did she really truly learn a lesson here? Did she change her way of thinking? Or is she just backtracking after this went public?
