Married At First Sight bride Cathy Evans has issued an apology after a resurfaced Instagram post from 2014 showed her using homophobic slurs and joking about rape.
In the now-deleted post, Cathy described a man she had encountered at the gym as a “fucking faggot”, before telling a friend “he was raping [her] with his eyes”.
“Wish I was this tanned all year!” She wrote. “Trained back today, any advice on how to deal with a fucking faggot who won’t stop staring at me when I work out?
“Like not the normal ‘checking you out’. It’s like proper, ‘In my culture, women don’t even come out of the house.’ Any advice I’ll take, thanks.”
Evans has since issued the following apology via Daily Mail Australia:
“I am so embarrassed for my use of such offensive and inappropriate language. It was a lapse in judgement at the time and I apologise for any hurt or offence I have caused.”
