Youth PCC: 'I'm not racist - I was naive'

Paris Brown has said that she regrets some of the things she tweeted, but that the messages were taken out of context.

Asked about a message which expressly said she was sexist and a racist, the 17-year-old said: "It was meant messing around. Of course I'm not homophobic, I'm not sexist, I'm not racist. None of that is true."

She added: "I was naive, I was idiotic and I do regret it."
