Octavia Spencer was one of the many people calling for Britney Spears to get a prenup when she announced her engagement to Sam Asghari over the weekend. While she meant it as a joke, the comment went viral. Now Octavia is apologizing.

“My intention was to make them laugh not cause pain,” the actress said. “I’ve reached out to this lovely couple privately to apologize and now want to restore just a smidge of happiness they were robbed of.”

Sherri Shepherd, Tracie Thoms, and Tami Roman were among those who knew she was joking, but commended her for being classy enough to apologize. Sam actually found his way into the comments to say, “You are very kind to clarify but I have no hard feelings whatsoever. Jokes and misconceptions come with the territory.”
