Taryn Manning was seen for the first time on Wednesday since posting a disturbing video detailing explicit sexual acts she allegedly performed with a married man.
The Orange Is The New Black star, 44, who played Tiffany Doggett in the Netflix show, looked somber as she stepped out in Palm Springs – after apologizing for the bizarre video.
Manning kept a low-profile in a black baseball cap, paired with a denim jacket, red tee and black shorts.
She kept her head down as she walked down the street before chatting with a friend.
The outing came two days after Manning posted a statement apologizing for the concerning video she posted detailing explicit sexual acts she allegedly performed with a married man.
Sighting: Taryn Manning was seen for the first time on Wednesday since posting a disturbing video detailing explicit sexual acts she allegedly performed with a married man
On Monday the star shared a simple text post to her Instagram account in which she said she was dealing with ‘a lot of guilt’ from sharing the original video, in which she claimed the wife of the man she was allegedly having an affair with was trying to get a restraining order against her.
The clip, which was quickly deleted from TikTok, particularly concerned many of her fans, as she filmed it in her car and was clearly slurring her words as she recorded it.
She included explicit descriptions of alleged sex acts with the man, including ‘l*****g his b******e because he liked it,’ and she described buying him a boat because she was so smitten with him.
‘Over the past few days, I’ve had some time to reflect on the situation I’ve been dealing with,’ she began her statement. ‘I was deeply hurt and handled things on a public platform when I should’ve just dealt with them quietly with the support of my close friends and family.’
Manning went on to claim that she had been ‘deeply hurt’ and admitted she should have ‘just dealt’ with the issue ‘quietly with the support of my close friends and family,’ rather than posting on a ‘public platform.’
She even claimed that she considered just lying about the incident before allegedly coming clean.
‘I felt a lot of Guilt After exposing everything and thought maybe the best resolution to the situation would be to say I lied about it all, but that is not the truth,’ she continued.
‘She went on to say that she had begun an affair with ‘somebody who was married and told me he would leave his wife,’ she continued, adding, ‘In the end, I found out that wasn’t possible.’

She said she was looking for ‘a healthy type of love,’ and ‘a love that isn’t so blind that it forces me to be somebody I’m not.’
‘With all this said, I am asking everyone to please give me my privacy so I can heal and mend my heart. Thank you,’ she concluded.
Manning previously sparked concern after the slurring star posted a three-minute video detailing graphic sexual acts she had performed on an unnamed married lover.

‘So you don’t accuse me of being the lunatic, but I’ll tell you one thing, lady, you want to put me in jail? I’ll put you in jail so fast your head will be spinning.’
