She has apologized.

Miss Peru Cindy Mejía came under fire for her anti-gay and just flat out ignorant comments, and even Ricky Martin got involved sharing his own perspective on the controversy.

She spoke with CNN En Español and apologized by saying:

“I would love to talk to him so he could hear me. Ricky Martin is an artist that I have admired since I was a little girl. I have always listened to his music. He has a right to his opinion, but I think that my public apology did not reach him, but I want him to know that this problem was healed by publicly apologizing to everyone that felt affected by my statement. I want him to know that I am not homophobic and that I never want any violence to come from my declarations.”

Ricky apparently responded with the following:

“I don’t have to forgive anyone, I simply said that it was painful to say untrue things but she already said ‘I’m sorry’, so I am happy with that, I wish her lots of success.”

Live and learn. Big lesson for her.
