Andoh has received backlash for her comment and has reportedly since apologized. “I was talking about the day and how marvellous it was and then looking at the balcony at the end and suddenly went, ‘Oh, it’s so white’ because the day had been so, so mixed and I didn’t mean to upset anybody,” said Adjoa, addressing her initial remark as noted here.
