    to let her know that she should not have been treated that way?  That she didn't/doesn't deserve to be treated that way?  That appears to me to be the intent of the apology.  I always feel better when I apologize for being an ass - that doesn't make it only self-serving.

      or her stupidity or her lack of self worth to be justifiable, necessarily, nor altruistic.

      To have been the one to pass out an offense doesn't put you in the best position to judge whether that offense was deserved, nor the position to "let her know".

      Conceivably, that could come across as immensely condescending.

      It seems curiosity has killed the cat that had my tongue.
