In a tweet posted to her account on Sunday, the Irish singer, 52, claimed that she was & # 39; angry and unwell & # 39; when she was the & # 39; racist & # 39; commented & # 39 ;, insisting that her comments & # 39; were not true then and are not true now. & # 39 ;.
The musician – also known as Shuhada & # 39; Davitt – also appeared in RTE & # 39; s The Late Late Show to discuss her new faith when she revealed that she & # 39; was at home in Islam and realized she & # 39; all my life was Muslim.
& # 39; I was angry and unwell & # 39 ;: Sinead O & # 39; Connor apologized for not wanting to spend more time with whites & # 39; after her conversion to Islam last year
In October last year, the hit maker Nothing Compares 2 U caused indignation from both Muslims and non-Muslims on Twitter when she claimed she no longer wants to spend time with & # 39; disgusting white people & # 39 ;.
The tweets of the former rock star contain the hashtags: & # 39; #TrustMeIAmaSoldier, #NotAsF ***** CrazyAsSheLooks & # 39; and #ReignOfWhiteMANover. & # 39;
Sinead repeated her comments the following month as she added: & I am terribly sorry. What I'm going to say is so racist that I never thought my soul could ever feel it.
& # 39; But I really don't want to spend any more time with whites (if that's what non-Muslims are called). Not for a moment, for whatever reason. They are disgusting. & # 39;

Referring to the negative comments from social media users, the hit maker Thank You for Hearing Me has posted: & # 39; Forgive me. Sometimes the Lord needs dirty workers; ) & # 39 ;. (Sic)
Almost a year after her bizarre social media activity, the Fire on Babylon singer explained: & Regarding comments I made angry and unwell about white people …
& # 39; They were not true then and not now. I was triggered as a result of Islamophobia being dumped on me. I apologize for the injury caused. That was one of the many crazy tweets that Lord knows. & # 39; (Sic)

During a recent appearance on The Late Late Show, Sinead said about her conversion to Islam: & I never thought I would join another religion. I left Islam until the end, because I had so many prejudices about Islam, you know.
& # 39; I read chapter two of the Qu & # 39; ran and realized that I am home and that I have been a Muslim all my life. There is a way of thinking.
& # 39; You can be a Muslim without being a Muslim, because it is a headset. A Muslim is someone who believes that nothing but God should be worshiped.
& # 39; In the same way that I had embraced Christianity, there are things that I like and things that I don't like; things I identify with and things I don't do. & # 39;
& # 39; I realized I'm home & # 39 ;: during a recent appearance on The Late Late Show, Sinead described her conversion to Islam
At the end of October, the mother of four – who was ordained as a priest by the traditionalist Catholic Tridentine movement in the 1990s – announced: & This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim. & # 39 ;
She added: & # 39; This is the natural conclusion of the journey of every intelligent theologian. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other writings unnecessary. I get a (new) new name. It will be Shuhada. & # 39;
The singer said she received her first hijab from her friend Elaine and & # 39;shivered all over her body when she put it on.
She has had a well-documented fight with psychological problems, which were fueled by a number of marital problems and legal problems. Sinead revealed that she tried to commit suicide in December 1999 on her 33rd birthday.
In October 2007, she said that a bipolar disorder had been diagnosed with her four years earlier and that she had a number of stints in rehabilitation centers in the US.
The former rock star claimed last year that her deceased mother & # 39; possessed & # 39; was and her repeatedly sexually abused as a child.
A family member also reported that she was missing in 2016 because of the fear that she was suicidal. She was found in a hotel room in Chicago.
In recent years she has largely stayed away from her native country of Ireland, where her four children Roison, Sahne and Yeshua live in favor of the US.
