Michelle “Bombshell” McGee was publicly slammed for having an affair with Jesse James and was judged for having numerous racist tattoos on her body; something she says she deeply regrets in a new video interview obtained by

“Am I a racist? Absolutely not,” McGee said in defense of the ‘WP’ and swastika tattoos on her body.

“WP at the time stood for ‘White Pride.’ It’s something that I did in my late teens. Another huge, huge mistake that I deeply, deeply regret.”

McGee also had a small swastika tattoo strategically placed on an intimate section of her body that she says has since been covered up.

“There was a swastika tattoo on my body and it was very small, not that it makes a difference, but it was covered up,” McGee explains. “Another stupid tattoo that I put on my body but unfortunately we all make mistakes.”

Perhaps most controversial were photos that surfaces of McGee donning a swastika armband and dressed in a Nazi uniform.

“Undeniably the biggest mistake of my life was putting on that costume,” McGee said.

“I was hired by the photographer to play a role, to play the character for shock value; something I deeply, deeply regret doing. I am not a Nazi. I do not have those beliefs.”

McGee compares her photo shoot to the likes of actors Tom Cruise and Edward Norton who have played Nazi characters in films.

“It’s just a character. It’s just a role… It was just a costume that I put on,” McGee said.

“I’ve hurt people through it and I apologize to any ethnicities that I’ve offended. It was not my intention to do that at all.”

McGee says she grew up in a closed-minded small town with no diversity and it wasn’t until she moved to California that her eyes were opened.

“I ran into different races, different creeds and realized there’s a lot more out there than what I’ve known,” McGee said.

“I obviously do not feel the same way I did over 10 years ago in my late teens. I wish I could take it back but it’s something that I can’t take back.”
