Asher Roth Responds To Racist Accusations

Today, Asher released a statement regarding this whole fiasco.

“The twitter situation was an immature attempt to poke fun at an infamously moronic joke. In doing so, I unconsciously stooped to the level of its originator, making it just as bad, if not worse. Pathetic. Lesson learned – nothing good can come from repeating hateful words, regardless of your intentions. Leaving no context in what was being said and being presented through text (no facial or vocal inflection) the sarcasm of the joke (or lack there of) was not properly perceived and left it purely in bad taste. I immediately apologized for my immaturity but the apologies and original post were deleted by my team in an effort to prevent more people from being offended. Unfortunately, the deletion of these statements led several people to believe that my apology was insincere, which is why I have made the decision to release this statement.”

Thank you, Mr. Roth. Now, back to regularly scheduled programming.

    I don’t think anyone was seriously thinking this dude was racist. It was like, he was apologizing at first but didn’t understand how his joke offended people.

    Seems to me like, he pulled the ideals from the mountain of @replies he got and put it together, to create a pretty statement. I mean, it’s whatever. I’d rather he slip now, then do like Em, pull you in, THEN, you get your heart broke when a tape comes out…*shrugs*
