Meanwhile, the results of McCorkle’s election should be in any minute now.

In linear sequence, the apology reassembled from tweets reads:

“I want to apologize to Aaron McCorkle, his fam, & friends for the offensive tweets I posted. I was wrong. What I said was hurtful to him & his loved ones, & I am apologetic. I also wanna apologize to the #WSSU students, staff, my fellow Ram alums, the LGBT community & anyone else that was offended by what I said. I own my mistake, man. Definitely a lesson learned. I super blessed to represent personal, local & national brands, & hope y’all know my tweets didn’t represent the views of ANY of the companies I work for- esp #WSSU. All I can do is ask for forgiveness & hope what I said doesn’t affect Aaron’s candidacy for Mr. WSSU. I’ve personally reached out to Aaron to apologize and he has agreed for us to have a sit down, and talk, face to face.”




  1. Sometimes it’s very disheartening to see apologies like this, particularly when face-to-face interactions are hardly likely to yield such negative results. I don’t know if it’s because some people get so hyped up by the distance and lack of direct accountability or if they actually believe what they say and are only regretful and concerned with apology when the hands that feed them close into fists.
