Alexandra Wallace apologizes, announces she will no longer attend UCLA

Alexandra Wallace announced she will no longer be attending UCLA in an apology letter released to the Daily Bruin on Friday. Wallace, the creator of the ““Asians in the Library” video that went viral last Sunday, released a statement through a spokesman for the Wallace family. The letter comes the day UCLA announced that it will not take action against Wallace for the video. Below is Wallace’s full letter: In an attempt to produce a humorous YouTube video, I have offended the UCLA community and the entire Asian culture. I am truly sorry for the hurtful words I said and the pain it caused to anyone who watched the video. Especially in the wake of the ongoing disaster in Japan, I would do anything to take back my insensitive words. I could write apology letters all day and night, but I know they wouldn't erase the video from your memory, nor would they act to reverse my inappropriate action. I made a mistake. My mistake, however, has lead to the harassment of my family, the publishing of my personal information, death threats, and being ostracized from an entire community. Accordingly, for personal safety reasons, I have chosen to no longer attend classes at UCLA. Alexandra Wallace Read more...
