Hollywood (ChatterShmatter) – John Mayer has issued an apology for the use of a racial slur during an interview with Playboy, where he used the “N” word.
John Mayer has been under a lot of fire for his use of the word during his Playboy interview.
He stated during the interview that “black people love me.” He even went as far as to say that he had a “n***** pass.”
This comment, without question, has sparked a lot of negative press toward Mayer.
He has since responded, issuing a full apology for what he said during the Playboy interview.
He said in a Tweet that “I am sorry that I used the word. And it’s such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself.”
So should the public accept the apology by John Mayer? That is still up for debate, as this was clearly a comment that was not thought out fully before it was stated.
Whether or not it had racial implications behind it is up for debate, but the reputation of John Mayer has certainly been tarnished.
