Married At First Sight EXCLUSIVE: Cathy Evans is ‘deeply sorry’ for using the N-word in a resurfaced Instagram post… after previously apologising for a homophobic slur and rape joke

Married At First Sight’s Cathy Evans has apologised for using a racial slur in a resurfaced Instagram post from 2015, when she was aged 21.

In the post, which has since been deleted, she used the N-word while documenting her weight loss.

Cathy told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday: ‘This post is from 2015 when I was younger and made some foolish decisions, I regret my use of this word and am deeply sorry for any offence I may have caused.’

The offensive caption was accompanied by a photo of Cathy posing in her bedroom.

She wrote: ‘Me high waisted shorts getting a little baggy but n***a I’m still wearing them cuz I’m cheap af and don’t wanna buy news ones.’

Last week, Cathy issued another apology for using a homophobic slur and joking about rape in a resurfaced Instagram post from 2014.

In the now-deleted post, Cathy described a man she had encountered at the gym as a ‘f**king f****t’, before telling a friend ‘he was raping [her] with his eyes’.

Cathy told Daily Mail Australia: ‘I am so embarrassed for my use of such offensive and inappropriate language. It was a lapse in judgement at the time and I apologise for any hurt or offence I have caused.’

She had left the comments alongside a photo of herself at the gym. She was 20 years old at the time and studying performing arts at Unitec Institute of Technology.

Her caption read: ‘Wish I was this tanned all year! Trained back today, any advice on how to deal with a f**king f****t who won’t stop staring at me when I work out?

‘Like not the normal “checking you out”. It’s like proper, “In my culture, women don’t even come out of the house.” Any advice I’ll take, thanks.’

After her friends commented on the post, Cathy added: ‘I’m not joking but [the man] looks like he’s raping me with his eyes.’
