Kian Lawley Issues Another Apology After Being Fired From 'The Hate U Give' Movie

Kian Lawley is trying to make up for his past mistakes and has issued an apology on social media for his actions.

“First of all, I am deeply sorry to those that were effected by my choice of language,” the actor and digital influencer wrote. “I understand that I am in the public eye & have many supporters, but none of my actions that took place should be supported. Words have power and can do a lot damage. I own mine and I am sorry.”

Kian continues, “I respect Fox’s decision to recast this role for The Hate U Give as it is an important story, and it would not be appropriate for me to be involved considering the actions of my past. I understand the impact and I have grown a lot and learned since then.

“With that being said, I am fully aware of the mistakes I have made and strive every day to become a better me than I was yesterday. We all have a voice, whether it’s big or small, we need to use it to spread love & light. From now on, I plan to use my voice for positive change.”

Last night, news broke that Kian had been fired from The Hate U Give after an old video with him saying derogatory and racist remarks re-surfaced.

Kian Lawley has been dropped from the upcoming movie The Hate U Give following his racist remarks featured in a resurfaced video.

Twentieth Century Fox will now be giving the Zac and Mia star’s role to another actor.

“Due to the controversy surrounding his past comments and behavior, Kian Lawley will no longer appear in The Hate U Give. The studio plans to recast the role of Chris and reshoot scenes as needed,” a spokesperson for the studio told Variety.

In the clip, Kian can be heard speaking the N-word and other racial slurs. “We’re all black drinking purple Kool-aid and eating Kentucky fried motherf–king chicken,” he says. (The video, which contains offensive language, can be seen in full here).

Kian was originally going to play the boyfriend of the movie’s lead actress, Amandla Stenberg. Based on Angela Thomas‘ novel of the same name, focusing on race and police brutality, the film also stars Issa Rae, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, and Common.

Zac and Mia is about to get really real, really fast on tomorrow’s season finale of the show — and JJJ has the first sneak peek!

In the final episode, as Mia begins to wrap her head around her new situation, Zac receives clarity on his Make A Wish.

The scene you’ll watch below is extremely hard hitting, but it’s not Kian Lawley or Anne Winters‘s favorite scenes that they filmed.

Speaking with JJJ, Anne revealed that the scene “where Kian sings me a song” is one of the ones she loved the most.

“You liked it, I didn’t,” Kian chimed in. “It was so embarrassing. I got hot, I got anxious. I was really nervous.”

Anne adds, “See, that’s so cute. It’s stuff like that, that makes it so real on set. It was such a cute moment. Even in the table read, and he was reading the song out loud, it was still such a cute and great moment. Everyone was smiling about it.”

Watch the sneak peek below and tune in for the season finale, premiering TOMORROW on go90.

Great news for Zac & Mia fans – season two is on it’s way!!

It was announced this morning that the go90 show is officially in production, according to Deadline.

The show, which stars YouTuber Kian Lawley and Anne Winters, began filming season two just one week after the show premiered earlier this month.

“CAN FINALLY ANNOUNCE SEASON 2,” Anne shared on Instagram in excitement.

Season two will see Zac as he “is excited to get his old life back, while Mia wrestles with hopelessness about her uncertain future and condition. As a couple, they’re now forced to navigate their budding relationship out in the real world, unprotected by the walls of the hospital.”

The stars recently spoke with JJJ about not having a connection to cancer prior to the show. Check it out here!

'Zac & Mia' Stars Anne Winters & Kian Lawley Talk About Not Having A Connection To Cancer Before The Show

There are so many people who are closely affected by cancer on the planet — whether it’s a close family member, friend, or even yourself.

While speaking with Zac & Mia‘s Anne Winters and Kian Lawley, JJJ found out that they both had almost no one in their own families who were affected by the horrible disease.

“My grandma had breast cancer, but it went away really fast,” Anne shared with us. “She got diagnosed and had surgery and then it was gone. Other than that, I haven’t really gone through it personally, having someone really close to me battle cancer.”

While Kian‘s connection to the disease was zero, he did feel like he experienced a similar battle with his own grandma.

“I’ve had no one in my family or close friends have cancer. My grandma had emphysema,” he explains. “I know it’s not cancer, but I feel like I got to know a battle like cancer, and got to unfortunately witness it first hand. I would go visit her at the hospital and she was bedridden. It was hard.”

However, not having a closer experience with cancer first hand, didn’t stop Anne or Kian from connecting with their characters.

“I feel like hearing anyone’s story though…I know that family and friends are a lot closer to you, but I’m not going to lie,” Anne shares. “When we were at the Mattel hospital listening to their stories and details and we were asking them so many questions…when you really get to know their lives it’s so hard hitting. It can be anyone and it will hit you hard.”
