Lauren Boebert, a controversial Republican congresswoman representing Colorado, issued an apology for her actions during a recent visit to a Denver theater, where she was caught vaping and creating a disruption during a performance of the family-friendly musical "Beetlejuice."
This apology came after surveillance video contradicted her previous denial of vaping during the show.
Ms. Boebert, aged 36, had initially denied reports of her vaping at the theater. However, a pregnant woman seated behind her had asked her to stop, leading to her ejection from the show for "causing a disturbance," as reported by The Denver Post.
In her statement, Ms. Boebert expressed her remorse for the incident and the unwanted attention it had brought to the community.
She stated, "The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I'm truly sorry for the unwanted attention my Sunday evening in Denver has brought to the community."
She emphasized that her actions that night were not intended to cause harm or be malicious but acknowledged that they had unintended consequences.
The congresswoman attributed her behavior to her "public and difficult divorce" and admitted to falling short of her own values on that particular evening.
