Lottie Moss has apologised for calling herself a “Covid super-spreader” before kissing two of her friends.

The model, who is the younger sister of Kate Moss, called herself “young and dumb” and said she should have been “more careful” with her words.

She had filmed herself on an Instagram Live with her two pals on Saturday when one of her followers asked if she was spreading coronavirus.

“We’re super-spreaders,” her friend joked, before Lottie, 22, added: “We’re super-spreading Covid.”

She went on: “Don’t let anyone tell you how to act.

“You’re young, fun and you can have the best time and do whatever you want to do.”

She then went on to kiss two of her friends in the video.

Lottie and three friends went out for dinner in London on Saturday, which was at the time still under Tier 2 restrictions.

After she received backlash on social media, Lottie took to her Instagram stories to apologise.

She said: “I just wanted to come on here and say I am so sorry for saying I was a super spreader.

“Someone in the live popped up saying those words and I repeated them as a joke because I am not and would never condone spreading a virus as serious as this.

“I was out for dinner with four friends, three of which are in the same household and under the government guidelines – as I live alone – I am allowed a support bubble of four.

“I understand this has upset and offended a lot of people and I want to apologise for making such an insensitive joke.

“I am still young and dumb and learning.

“I sometimes forget that I am a public figure and during these crazy and uncertain times I should have been more careful with my words.”
