Amanda Knox claims people now 'say sorry' to her and vows NEVER to change her name after being cleared of killing Brit Meredith Kercher

AMANDA Knox says people are now flocking to apologise to her after she was cleared of murdering Brit student Meredith Kercher.

The American was subject to a high-profile Netflix documentary last year that saw her discuss the notorious 2007 murder.

And 32-year-old Knox reckons the programme saw those who were convinced of her guilty change their minds in droves.

Speaking on the Wrongful Conviction podcast, she said: "People were saying sorry to me for jumping to conclusions about me, and I never expected that to happen.

"I’d come to peace with the idea that unless you met me, you probably hated me.”

Knox and then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of stabbing 21-year-old Brit student Kercher to death at a flat in Perugia, Italy, in 2007.

Rudy Guede was convicted of the murder in 2008 and remains behind bars.

Knox and Sollecito were found guilty in 2009, but freed on appeal two years later.

Their guilty verdict was reinstated in 2014 but quashed by Italy’s top court in March 2015.

In light of the infamy she endured, Knox says she was told to change her name many times.

But she refused, insisting she is a "good person".

She added: "People told me all the time, ‘You should just change your name so you don’t have to deal with it.'

“But it’s like, you know what, no. There’s nothing wrong with being Amanda Knox.

"Amanda Knox didn’t do anything. I’m a good person.”
