YouTube star Jenna Marbles has left her channel.

In her most recent post, the creator, whose real name is Jenna Mourey, apologized for the “embarrassing” videos she had made in the past, and some included racist content.

“I just want to tell you that I didn’t mean to make a black face. It doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters is that people were offended. It’s embarrassing, it’s horrible. I wish it wasn’t part of my past.” she said.

Marbles, who has more than 20 million YouTube subscribers, also apologized for a 2011 rap video that included racist and derogatory phrases, and she said, “It’s horrible, it doesn’t need to exist.”

She added: “I am ashamed that I did that.”

Marbles also highlighted another video that was released in 2012, where he admitted “slut embarrassing” other women.

In the emotional video, he said those videos, and much of his other content, had now been made private, as he “didn’t want to hurt anyone” with the content he had produced.

“In case you haven’t noticed, there’s no [sponsored content] On this channel, I’m not trying to sell you anything, I’m literally here to have a good time and I don’t think I’m having a good time. It seems that other people are not having a good time. So for now, I can’t exist on this channel. “

Marmoles continued: “So I think I’m going to leave this channel for now. I don’t know if that will be forever, I don’t know how long it’s going to be. I just want to make sure that the things I’m putting in the world aren’t hurting no one “.
