Hunter issues apology for tweets

Tyler Hunter issues apology for controversial tweets



Florida State defensive back Tyler Hunter issues an apology Thursday afternoon for his controversial tweets over the summer that quoted rap lyrics referencing killing cops.

Full Release:

Before I take the field to represent Florida State again, I wanted to make sure I apologized for the hurtful tweets I posted on my twitter account about police officers. It was a terrible mistake and something I wish I could take back. I never meant to be hurtful and disrespectful to police officers and the families of fallen officers. I've appreciated the time the Florida State police officers have spent with me educating me about their jobs and the jobs of other officers. I've learned about the risks they take daily for our safety, the sacrifices they make and know it's no an easy job. Nothing should have caused me to quote or use words like that.

I never meant to embarrass my teammates, my coaches, my family, the University of the alumni like that. I've learned form this and hopefully can move past this so I can represent Florida State in the right way.
