Meghan Trainor attends the 2022 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on November 20, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

Meghan Trainor is apologizing for her recent comments talking down on teachers. The “Made You Look” singer posted a video apologizing for her “careless” comments about teachers and gave an explanation about planning to homeschool her children.

“Teachers of TikTok and teachers of the world, I recently said ‘F teachers’ on the podcast and it’s not how I feel,” the 29-year-old said on TikTok Sunday (April 23). “I was fired up because we were talking about how sending your kid to school here in America is so horrific. And what all of us have to go through, especially teachers, is not normal. And not okay.”

The “All About That Bass” singer added that she said “F teachers” because she and her husband were bullied by teachers. Her comments were meant for their teachers and not all teachers, she explained. “I love teachers, I fight for teachers,” she continued in the TikTok. “I think they have the hardest job. And they are the most underpaid. They’re the most underappreciated. When they literally raise all of us.”


@galsgotmoxie thank you for making your video and for bringing attention to this. I am sorry for being careless with my words. I LOVE teachers and I am here for you ❤️ Let’s work to make schools a better place together

Trainor, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Daryl Sabara, also shares a 2-year-old son named Riley. The Massachusetts songstress discussed parenthood on her podcast last week. She revealed that she was going to homeschool her children on the Wednesday (April 19) episode. “Everyone on TikTok is like, ‘This is what it’s like having kids in America,'” Meghan said. “‘I have a bulletproof backpack.’ I was like, f— all that.”

Referring to the epidemic of mass shootings, this year so far, mass shootings have taken 88 lives in 17 mass killings over 111 days, per PBS. One of the recent tragedies occurred last month at Nashville’s The Covenant School, in which a 28-year-old woman opened fire in the primary school and killed three teachers and three students. Authorities later shot and killed the perpetrator on the scene.

Guest Trisha Paytas agreed with Trainor’s remarks, adding that she also worried about potential bullies and teachers. “F— teachers, dude,” Trainor said.
