The rocker posted a series of messages on his Twitter page after the article’s release revealed his use of the “N word” — and various other bizarre remarks about race and his anatomy.
“Re: using the ‘N word’ in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word,” Mayer Tweeted. “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. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there’s no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged……I should have never said the word and I will never say it again.”
Who does he think he’s talking to? A bunch of assholes? If this interview hadn’t gotten out, he’d still be using the word and he wouldn’t be serving up an apologies for it. Racially-insensitive people are so 1963! (Officially deleting “Clarity” from my iPod….)
