Ellise Shafer Colleen Ballinger has addressed her infamous ukulele apology video, posted in June, in which she denied allegations of grooming through song. In a new video simply titled “fall vlog,” Ballinger returned to YouTube for the first time in four months and acknowledged that the apology was “really embarrassing.” “Obviously, the last video that I posted on here is really embarrassing, to say the least.
I was being accused of some pretty awful things and I just was mad,” Ballinger said in the video. “I should have handled that situation with maturity and empathy, but instead I just let my ego take over and I’m really disappointed in myself.” Allegations against Ballinger first emerged in 2020, but a NBC News report published in June shed new light on the situation as more members of Ballinger’s online fandom came forward.
According to the report, YouTuber Adam McIntyre made a video in 2020 alleging that Ballinger had “formed an inappropriate personal friendship with him while he was between the ages of 13 and 16, which included her sending him lingerie as a joke. He also alleged that Ballinger gave him access to her social media, helped her generate content ideas, and that they exchanged text messages for years.” Ballinger further responded to the allegations in her new video, saying: “Over the last 15 years of my career, there have been moments where I was immature and inappropriate with some of my comedy.
And there were times when I did not put enough thought into my fan interactions. And because of that behavior, people got hurt, and I am so sorry.
