Micah Lussier has issued apologies for her behavior on Love Is Blind season 4 — and now she's apologizing to viewers.

In a statement on her Instagram, Micah owned up to what some fans have called mean girl behavior. "I have apologized privately to the people that were hurt on the show by my hands," she wrote in an Instagram story on Tuesday. "I would like to apologize publicly. An emotional immaturity was shown and I will grow from it."

Micah added, "To the viewers I've hurt. I'm sorry I've triggered so many of you with my behavior. Seeing that person on the screen would make me feel the same anger."

Micah continued to share why she's turned off her Instagram comments for now. "I am doing my best to protect my mental health (deserved or not). It has always been something I've struggled with, and I know I can not better myself if I'm more unwell mentally."

She concluded, "I hope you understand that I am taking accountability privately."

The statement comes after Micah and Irina Solomonova were flagged as bullies on the series when the pair appeared to ally against the other women. During the pods stage, Micah and Irina — who has not yet addressed the backlash — joked about other tearful contestants.

In episodes when the participants had the chance to interact with each other in the real world, Micah's behavior sparked even more criticism from viewers.

After connecting with Kwame in the pods, Micah found closure during a conversation with him. But many viewers found the moment entirely too flirty between Micah and Kwame — who were both engaged to other people. Kwame also received online hate for his involvement.

However, Micah previously told PEOPLE she wasn't ever intending to open a door with Kwame again. "I think the way that I interact with people could come off as flirty, which I totally understand, but in reality, that's how I am, that's how I act," she said. "I want to stay genuine to who I am. I'm not going to put on a show and be stiff, I was myself."

Micah added, "The only regret I would have is causing anyone else pain or causing their relationship issues. That's something that I would regret and hope that it didn't cause any issues."
