UPDATED 07/23, 3:00 p.m. ET: Draya Michele shared a second apology to her Instagram Story, in which she addressed "victims of domestic violence."

"I just want to take a min to address victims of domestic violence and abuse of any kind and just overall humans, I was wrong to insinuate that there is room for violence in loving relationships, or in any relationship for that matter," she wrote. Michele went on to say that it was wrong of her to make light of the incident, and that it's always her intention to uplift women.

See the original story below.

Draya Michele is facing backlash over ill-conceived comments on the Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez shooting incident.

The media personality made the remarks during the latest episode of the Wine and Weed podcast, when she compared Meg and Lanez's relationship to that of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's.

"I predict that they had some sort of Bobby and Whitney love that drove them down this ... type of road," Draya said. "I'm here for it. I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot, too."

She continued: "I want you to like me so much that if I'm trying to get out the car, and you're like, 'No, sit your ass in the car,' and I'm like, 'No n***a, I'm getting out the car.' [He goes] 'No you're not!' Bah-bah!"

@drayamichele this is actually really gross and disappointing that you spoke on this topic like it’s some kind of “cute and desirable” love story .. especially as a woman. extremely thoughtless and inconsiderate. do better.
