Reinhart says she "made a mistake" with her Instagram caption

"I’ve always tried to use my platform for good. And speak up about things that are important to me," she tweeted. "I also can admit when I make a mistake and I made a mistake with my caption. It was never my intent to insult anyone and I’m truly sorry to those that were offended."
"I’ve tried very hard to be honest on my IGTV lives that I’m still learning and trying to be better," Reinhart continued. "But I understand that my caption came off as tone deaf. I truly had good intentions and did not think it through that it could come off as insensitive."
