Ellie Kemper has broken her silence after old photos showed the star participating in a debutante ball years ago that is linked to an organization that’s been accused of racism. “Hi guys – when I was 19 years old, I decided to participate in a debutante ball in my hometown,” the actress wrote in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday. “The century-old organization that hosted the debutante ball had an unquestionably racist, sexist, and elitist past. I was not aware of this history at the time, but ignorance is no excuse. I was old enough to have educated myself before getting involved.”
Hey, when Hollyweird pays your bill, you better stick to the rules.
