Gina Rodriguez uses N-word during scripted sketch in unearthed video... amid scandal over THAT Fugees clip

  • Videos resurfaced of Gina hurling the N-word at a co-star seven years ago
  • She caught backlash after singing the slur on Instagram earlier this week
  • The Jane the Virgin star deleted the video and later posted an apology
  • Rodriguez issued a second apology after being criticized for her lack of remorse

She issued multiple apologies after recording herself saying a racial slur on Instagram earlier this week.

And recently surfaced YouTube videos showed that Gina Rodriguez has been comfortable saying the N-word for years now as she hurled the term at a co-star in a since-deleted clip.

The 35-year-old actress used the word during a scene with two Black actors which was reportedly filmed seven years ago and unearthed just days after she sang the word on her Instagram stories, causing an incredible amount of backlash online.

'Take a lap n****,' she yelled at one of the actors in the short clip. 'Take a lap.'

Gina was sporting a sundress and dark brown hair in the video, which appeared to be outside of a school campus. 

The Golden Globe winner sparked out rage on Tuesday after posting a video of herself sitting in a makeup chair and singing Lauryn Hill's verses on Ready or Not by the Fugees when the racial epitaph easily flew out of her mouth.

Rodriguez deleted the video from her account and later posted an awkward apology where she claimed that she had been singing the song for years and that she loves Lauryn Hill.

'Hey, what’s up everybody — I just wanted to reach out and apologize,' she said in a short clip on her Instagram stories. 'I am sorry. I am sorry if I offended anyone by singing along to the Fugees, to a song that I love, that I grew up on. 'I love Lauryn Hill. And I really am sorry if I offended you.'

After being criticized for her initial apology, the Jane The Virgin star took to her Instagram feed to share a text post that explained how 'thoughtless' she had been. 

'In song or in real life, the words that I spoke, should not have been spoken,' the Chicago native wrote. 

She went on: 'I grew up loving the Fugees and Lauryn Hill. I thoughtlessly sang along to the lyrics of a favorite song, and even worse, I posted it. The word I sang, carries with it a legacy of hurt and pain that I cannot even imagine.'

'Whatever consequences I face for my actions today, none will be more hurtful than the personal remorse I feel. Watching my own video playing back at me, has shaken me to my core.

'It is humiliating that this has to be a public lesson but it is indeed a much deserved lesson. I feel so deeply protective and responsible to the community of color but I have let this community down. I have some serious learning and growing to do and I am so deeply sorry for the pain I have caused.'

In 2017, Rodriguez was the subject of scrutiny after Black Panther was announced and she sent out a less-than-inclusive tweet, missing the point that the film represented a community she's not a part of.

'Marvel and DC are killing it in inclusion and women but where are the Latinos?! Asking for a friend…,' she wrote.

During a panel last year with Ellen Pompeo, Gabrielle Union and Emma Roberts, Gina questioned equal pay and who the leading ladies were in the television industry.

'I get so petrified in this space talking about equal pay, especially when you look at the intersectional aspect of it, right? Where white women get paid more than black women, black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it's like a very scary space to step into,' she said.

Fans and foes were quick to point out that Sofia Vergara was the highest paid TV actress in the world, Latina and hailed from Colombia.
