Pookie is under fire tonight.
Campbell Puckett—who recently went viral on TikTok due to her affectionate nickname from husband Jett Puckett—was accused of racial insensitivity after old photos of herself in an outfit resembling attire worn during the Antebellum period were unearthed online.
Amid the public backlash, Campbell issued an apology for the images, which she said were taken at a time she "didn't fully understand the impact" of her actions.
"At the time these photos were taken, I was 20," the now-31-year-old wrote on Instagram Stories Jan. 31. "I fully apologize for the harm this may have caused for some and take full responsibility."
Campbell continued, "Jett and I love sharing our lives with you all and getting to know our community on such an intimate level. Because we live our lives so publicly, everything is on the internet, even my mistakes. We hope to continue to bring you with us on our journey as we continue to learn and grow."
The controversial images surfaced shortly after Campbell and her husband skyrocketed to viral fame with their OOTD videos. Though the Georgia-based couple have been creating content for years, videos of Jett complimenting Campbell's date night outfits started garnering millions of views on TikTok last month.
Most famously, Jett told Campbell in a Jan. 28 video: "Pookie looks absolutely fire tonight."
The catchphrase has since become a popular meme, with Dunkin' even calling their doughnuts "Pookie" in a TikTok video. Meanwhile, the Broadway production of Chicago captioned a photo of Ariana Madix at her big onstage debut: "Pookie Is Looking Absolutely [fire emoji]."
