A decision that I made to privately share a cartoon meme has recently been called into question. While I did not create this meme, I made a poor decision for sharing it and I truly apologize for my misjudgment. The casual use of the word in culture and society can desensitize its meaning and intention and I recognize what I did was wrong. The use of such word is never okay.
I regret my decision to send that meme but will use this as a learning experience. The relationships that I have built and maintained throughout my life demonstrate who I truly am as a person. I ask those who know me, and more importantly – those who don’t to please, not let one mistake define who I am as a person. I recognize the mistake I have made, take full accountability, and apologize to anyone who was hurt or offended by it.
