However, in a statement provided to multiple media outlets, Turner said she actually used the word "motherf*ckers."

"I used the word 'motherf*ckers' in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested," she explained. "I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word."

Glad that's cleared up/as you were.
