Michael Clifford is apologizing for a series of offensive tweets that a short while ago resurfaced online.
“Hi. I am so f–king sorry for all the dumb s–t I did when I was youthful,” the 5 Seconds of Summer time musician wrote on Twitter. “I am a distinct human being now with a substantially better knowing of the entire world. Some individuals have entry to a digital megaphone a little bit earlier than they ought to, unfortunately, I was one of them.”
He then tweeted he’s “so sorry for hurting any individual.”
“It was hardly ever my intention,” he ongoing. “I was so naive and I am ashamed and I am outside of sorry. I will keep on to be far better and I will proceed to improve. I in no way want to hurt any one yet again.”
Last week, a social media consumer shared screenshots of a variety of posts the 24-year-old artist allegedly shared in the past and then deleted. One particular screenshot, for instance, appeared to show Clifford telling a follower in 2012 to “get a woman” immediately after the follower claimed to be “hopeless in the kitchen.”
“I am so negative at producing sandwiches,” a further screenshotted tweet from that year read through, “I would be a terrible female.”
The Twitter consumer also shared shots of tweets Clifford allegedly shared in 2012 and 2013 that contained homophobic language.
“Luke5SOS lol f-g,” just one screenshotted message read.
“Luke5SOS Oh gee willickers this is so excitingabubble!” a further read. “You tweet like a f-g hahaha.”
