In a video posted by Joe Jonas, which featured Turner in the gym, Jonas tells the camera “look who came today” while panning around to the actor, who says “what’s up”, followed by the unintelligible word.

In a statement to reporters, Turner said “I used the word ‘motherf**kers’ in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested.”

She continued: “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.”
