Louisa Johnson

The former X Factor winner has spoken out about the recently discovered tweets she sent back in 2013.

When Louisa Johnson took the X Factor crown in 2015, she was just 17 years old. Several years before bursting into the charts, it turns out Louisa sent a handful of tweets using homophobic language and these have now resurfaced.

Following the tweets re-emerging, Louisa has shared an apologetic statement on her Twitter account, explaining that her statement was not an excuse but an explanation.

Louisa's statement read: 'When I was a school girl I made some inappropriate remarks on Twitter. I was young and foolish, and hanging around with the wrong crowd & didn't know any better. That's not an excuse, it's an explanation.'

She went on to add, 'I'm sorry for some of the comments  made at that time on social media. I think it's important for me to speak out about this and say that I don't think it is right or appropriate for anyone to use derogatory language at any time or any age no matter what the circumstances.'

'I am a completely different person to who I was at the age of 14, and I am huge supporter of the LGBT community. I have a lot of young fans and I know I can now use my voice for a message of positivity, inclusion and equality X'.

The tweets began to resurface after Louisa was announced to be performing on the main stage at Birmingham Pride Festival this year...
