(via TMZ) -
"YouTube star Nicole Arbour finally realizes her timing was total crap when she released her version of "This Is America" ... and she's apologizing to Donald Glover -- aka Childish Gambino.
We got Nicole at The Laugh Factory on Thursday in WeHo where our guy straight-up asked her how she's dealing with the allegation she whitewashed Gambino's music video with her "This Is America: Women's Edit" version."
"Nicole posted this video last week, equating the women's struggle with racism and gun violence black America faces. The backlash was swift ... with one person tweeting her, "Yep. This is America alright. Black person creates then it's appropriated."
What do you think of her apology?
