The first black woman crowned Miss Alabama is standing by a controversial video in which she called the Dallas gunman a “martyr,” but admits it was a poor choice of words.
Speaking to Inside Edition Tuesday, Kalyn Chapman James said she was emotional while recording the video, which made her the target of national backlash.
“I do wish that I hadn’t used [that word] in my video,” she said.
She explained, “I only used the word in the context of a person who feels like they’re dying for something they believe in. What he did was wrong… He is not a hero. I feel like that’s what he thought he was. But no, he’s not a hero to me. I don’t condone what he did.”
