Gypsy Rose Blanchard wanted to set the record straight with her followers before departing from social media.

On Thursday, Blanchard, 32, took to TikTok to share a video, which has since been deleted along with the rest of her account on TikTok and other platforms, in which she said she felt "regret" and apologized "to all the people that I offended with a lack of accountability."

A source explained to PEOPLE that her decision "was at the advisement of her parole officer, so she won’t get in trouble and go back to jail."

"To my family, my dad, my husband. All I am is just Gypsy. And they love me for being who I am," Blanchard led off the video, noting that it's why "my private Facebook and my private Instagram has #LoveForWhoIAm as my bio."

Blanchard continued, "Number one, to all the people that I offended with a lack of accountability, the first month or so that I was out of prison and the lack of accountability in my interviews, I'm sorry. I'm learning. I take accountability for my part, and I'm saying this right now. I'm taking accountability. I did a bad thing."

However, she added that she has "been given a second chance at life," and as a result, asks her followers to "give me a little grace."

"Let my actions match my words. And we'll go from there," Blanchard said. "I definitely have a good support system. And I think I'm just now starting to get around to listening to my inner self instead of all the noise that's been on social media. So with that being said, thank you so much for watching and hearing me out."

She concluded by stating that the intention of the video was to offer a "public apology to anyone that felt offended by my lack of accountability," particularly highlighting her "regret" surrounding "coming out of prison and all the interviews and stuff like that."
