So, I have no issue with owning up and apologizing from the bottom of my heart for the really hurtful words that I used.” Justin continued.

During the podcast he continued with the apology and spoke about the funny things he used to do when he was just 14-year-old Justin. “When I look back at 14-year-old Justin, I was in high school and quite frankly I was the type of person who for whatever reason felt the need to fit in and say funny things and keep up with what my peers were doing and saying.” “The folks I had associated with would throw around really hurtful slurs that, at the time, I didn’t really think anything of,” he concluded.
It has been years to those tweets, yet Justin mentioned that, “What I said was ignorant and hurtful then, and it’s ignorant and hurtful now.”
