Jake Fromm, quarterback for Buffalo Bills has faced backlash after a series of text from him were leaked on twitter. In the text, Fromm addressed gun control and said that suppressors should be “expensive so only elite white people can get them.”
The Bills QB has now taken to social media to apologize for the racially insensitive comment. Take a look at the statement below.
“I am extremely sorry that I chose to use the words ‘elite white people’ in a text message conversation,” he wrote in his apology. “Although I never meant to imply that I am an ‘elite white person,’ as stated later in the conversation, there’s no excuse for that word choice and sentiment. While it was poor, my heart is not. Now, more than ever, is the time for support and togetherness and I stand against racism 100%.”
“I promise to commit myself to being a part of the solution in this country,” he continued. “I addressed my teammates and coaches in a team meeting today and i hope they see this incident is not representative of the person I am. Again, I’m truly sorry for my words and actions and humbly ask for forgiveness.”
