Only a matter of hours after the news broke that TLC was no longer going to be airing “LA Ink” after this season, we now have a rather interesting war of words — even though most reports out there insist that the reality show was “canceled,” Kat Von D herself is insisting that this decision was made because she didn’t want to do the show anymore.
On Thursday afternoon, her is what Kat wrote via her Twitter account about the matter:
“I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being ‘canceled.’ Thanks @TLC. Regardless of everything I remain grateful.”
Kat also promises that there will be a longer statement published soon regarding why she decided to walk away from the show — which has covered everything from her opening tattoo shop High Voltage to her relationship with Jesse James (which ended earlier this year).
For now, feel free to check out a retrospective of the series below. Why do you think Kat decided that she was done with “LA” after several seasons of success?
