A heartfelt apology to the LGBT community, his supporters and friends…
Stormzy has today apologised for an anti-gay comments he tweeted a few years ago and now admitted full responsibility of his actions. The homophobic comments he tweets included the terms ‘Faggot’ and ‘Fag’, which the LGBT community and the general public deems very offensive.

He has now fully apologised, citing being ‘young and proudly ignorant’ as the some of the main causes.

“I said some foul and offensive things whilst tweeting years ago at a time when I was young and proudly ignorant. Very hurtful and discriminative views that I’ve unlearned as I’ve grown up and become a man..”
“The comments I made were unacceptable and disgusting, full stop. Comments that I regret and to everyone I’ve offended, I am sorry, these are attitudes I’ve left in the past. The homophobic language I used was, embarrassingly, a part of my vocabulary when I was younger and…”
“ignorance made me feel comfortable to use them whilst not understanding the hate and the ramifications they carry. That isn’t an excuse, I take responsibility for my mistakes and hope you can understand that my younger self doesn’t reflect who I am today.”

“Again, I’m sorry to everyone I’ve offended. To the LGBQT community and my supporters and friends, my deepest apologies 🙏🏿” – He wrote.
