Back at the end of May 2020, Zegler admitted she was a racist on Twitter writing, “If you think using my platform as any decent human being should is ‘barking orders’, hahaha. Ok. I have donated, shared, and will continue to educate myself on the never ending racism that I— and many other white/white passing people— am to blame for. Do the same. Be well.”

Regarding her invite to be a presenter, the report from The Hollywood Reporter comes after Zegler claimed she had not been invited to the awards ceremony on her personal Instagram.

In the comments section of a recent post a fan stated, “Can’t wait to see what you’ll be wearing on Oscar night.”

Zegler replied, “I’m not invited so sweatpants and my boyfriend’s flannel.”
