James did apologize for the Comment, although, saying his mistake was a studying experience. “I can solely think about how awful it feels to be invalidated by People outdoors of the group, not to mention me, somebody inside the LGBTQ+ group that has a big platform, and I am actually, actually embarrassed by it,” he mentioned. “I simply need my trans brothers and sisters to know that I’m sorry, I like all of you so, so, a lot and this has been a very cool studying experience for me to be educated on this matter and to be taught a complete lot greater than I did before.”
