In a tweet on Wednesday, the 22-year-old actor said that the controversy has been “a pivotal life lesson” and vowed to become “a more informed and educated version” of himself.
“I am deeply sorry for my inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media. I take full responsibility for my actions and I sincerely apologize.
“This has been a pivotal life lesson for me. I am dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself.”
Broussard received flak for posting a slew of racist and problematic tweets regarding Japan, #BlackLivesMatter, and women, among others.
Additionally, the actor reportedly “liked” controversial tweets, including one which claimed that the Sandy Hook massacre was “staged” to “traumatize” and “disarm the public.”
While some accepted Broussard’s apology, many were left unsatisfied.
Users pointed out that he was only sorry because his tweets were discovered.
Others are simply not buying it.
