“To those who found the color of the emoji racist, I can promise that I did not mean for it to be interpreted that way. I would like to apologize to everyone who found this offensive as I strongly stand against racism in any form,” the 19-year-old said in a team statement.
“To anyone who disagrees with me politically, that is fine. I won’t hate you for it. I only ask the same.”
Seems the young lad is very confused. Hopefully Trek management will enlighten him on what racism is and then he’ll wake up to that fact that a) racism isn’t political, and b) he supports a racist politician, thus condoning racism.
No high hopes here.
