In it, Marissa said she was “deeply sorry” for saying there was “absolutely no authenticity left in that business.”
However, her apology has provoked mixed reactions on Twitter.
Some praised Marissa for having the guts to “admit she was wrong”…
@CarterMarissa 👏 It takes guts to acknowledge mistakes & apologise Marissa. We’re all human. Thanks for acknowledgment of the situation, much appreciated.☺

@CarterMarissa Fair play, was just a bad choice of words, I understood what was meant though.
I’ve always felt very appreciated as a blogger by you 👏🏽

@CarterMarissa It would seem as an successful international business woman you are not entitled to an opinion. Who knew, truth hurts some folk 😅😅

@CarterMarissa Really not needed but a lovely thought. Like every industry there are good and bad and blogging is just the same

I feel that Marissa’s apology lacks a little something. Can’t put my finger on it. Ah yes, it’s missing a bit of authenticity

There’s a lil crowd of bloggers still licking up to Marissa “so brave”. Are you that desperate for a free bottle? 😂😂😂

Marissa returned to Ireland following a Cocoa Brown press trip to Monte Carlo yesterday, and is yet to respond to the comments on Twitter.
