Earlier this week Naya Rivera received a heavy backlash when she offered her opinion about people's hygienic habits - specifically showering - but now the 'Glee' actress wants to retract her comments.

Rivera apologised for her controversial remarks about showering

The 28-year-old beauty returned to guest host 'The View' on Wednesday (Jan 14th) to offer an apology for what she said to Rosie O'Donnell, Nicolle Wallace and her other co-hosts about taking showers on Tuesday's show.

"I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics," she remarked as Wallace couldn't help but laugh. "I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing."

Rivera, who is married to Ryan Dorsey and claims her white husband showers more frequently than her, attempted to clarify what she actually meant in her latest appearance on the daytime talk show.

"Yesterday we were talking about a study that says you're supposed to shower once or twice every three days," she began. "I had an opinion on it that was supposed to be a joke. Apparently it didn't go over so well."

"It was supposed to be a joke, but I apologize if anyone was offended," Rivera continued, before adding, "However, I'm very excited that it sparked a big conversation about how many times you should shower."

If any audience member of viewer was still feeling doubtful about Rivera's hygienic habits, guest-host Mario Cantone reassured them that the brunette beauty is a very clean person. "I went into your dressing room today and I grabbed you and we got naked, we got into a shower, and I scrubbed her back furiously," Cantone said. "Back off Naya. She's very clean."
