Brody Jenner Apology via Instagram for Black Lives Matter Comments

Taking again. Brody Jenner published an apology through Instagram after it was closed for the exchange of controversial comments about the Black Lives Matter Comments.

Last week, the 33-year-old reality star rereleased one of the comments of his friends in Lamont Keith Scott, a black man who was shot dead by a police officer in Charlotte, North Carolina , in September.

“I normally don’t speak about this type of stuff, but this is just ridiculous,” Jenner’s friend, Taylor Mosher, wrote. “I can’t even watch the news anymore without getting pissed off. This has nothing to do with race. White, black, brown, any color…if you have an officer of the law telling you to exit your vehicle (or do anything for that matter)…you comply. And not only do you comply, but you do so willingly and follow directions completely. And why in the world would you exit that vehicle with a weapon in hand (allegedly?!) That makes no sense! And if, let’s just say, you DON’T have a gun, why would you not put your hands up in the air and state ‘I do not have a gun’ so that the officers can clearly see that you don’t??”

Jenner reposted (and then deleted) the Instagram comment, adding, “AMEN T!!”

The DJ (who is the son of Caitlyn Jenner andLinda Thompson) immediately faced backlash on social media, prompting him to apologize for his “careless and misguided” remarks.

“After taking some time to reflect and learn a lot over the last few days, I want to address my careless and misguided posts last weekend,” he wrote via Instagram Friday, September 30. “Having done more research into the Black Lives Matter movement, including reading a very informative editorial [in Vanity Fair] by @lmanisviney, I realize that my comments weren’t thoughtful or substantiated.

I spoke out of turn on a subject I wasn’t particularly educated on. It was never my intention to exacerbate an already contentious situation in our country. I am a firm supporter of the African American community and I am grateful that my mistake allowed me the opportunity to increase my own awareness of Black Lives Matter, and hope that going forward we can continue this conversation in a positive and peaceful way.”
