Matthew Tyler Vorce, who is best known in recent memory as Billie Eilish’s boyfriend, saw some old tweets surface that did not paint him in the best light at all. This saw a controversy spark and tons of fans called out to cancel Eilish over those old tweets from Vorce.
Billie’s actor boyfriend has spoken out on the matter. He posted an Instagram story with a text slide that addressed this situation directly. There was an apology first followed by admitting that he is ashamed of those old tweets that came to light in recent memory.
“I want to apologize for the things that I wrote on social media in the past. The language I used was hurtful and irresponsible and I understand how offensive those words are. Whether it was a lyric, a quote or just me being dumb, it does not matter. I am ashamed and deeply sorry that I used them in any context. It is not how I was raised and it is not what I stand for. I shouldn’t have used this language in the first place and I won’t use it again. I am so sorry for the hurt I have caused.”
This just goes to show that nothing on the internet really goes away, especially old tweets that include the N-Word. Vorce committed a big faux pas when he tweeted out those offensive things. He certainly learned a lesson and had to fess up to all of those old tweets. Now we will have to wait and see if the jury of public opinion is willing to let this one slide.
