UK streamer and YouTuber Ayrun has issued an apology after a video surfaced of him using the n-word.
Ayrun, who has 320,000 subscribers on YouTube channel and 124,000 followers on Twitch, first posted an apology on Twitter on February 9th.
His comments came after this video surfaced from a few years back, showing him making the racial slurs and that he has ‘the n-word pass’.
Ayrun said he was “profoundly ashamed” of the language he used.
In his first Twitlonger post, he said: “Whilst this video is a couple of years old, and whilst those who have seen it will acknowledge that the context of my use of the language was not in any way aggressive, there is absolutely no excuse for the naivety I showed in thinking that it was acceptable to use in any context, and it is deeply embarrassing to watch the footage back.
“I’ve done a lot of growing up since that time, and have a much better understanding of the way I should conduct myself, and anyone who follows me knows that I try to set the best possible example to those who support me, and that this incident is not a true reflection of myself as a person or a content creator.
“I apologise to everyone, and particularly anyone who was personally offended by the language used. I hope to be a better role model in the future to ensure this type of behaviour is eradicated from our future generations.”
Ayrun published another tweet earlier today, extending his apology.
