Pastor Mark Burns, a black pastor part of Donald Trump’s outreach effort to African Americans, tweeted an image of Hillary Clinton in blackface on Monday. “Black Americans, THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES and letting me use you again..See you again in 4 years,” the tweet read with the accompanying image.
But, Burns apparently saw the error of his ways and after a ton of online outrage, he deleted the tweet.
Burns apologized for the imagery, saying, “I regret the offensiveness of the black face,” but not the message. “I still stand by what the image represents but I think that, you know, I should have used better judgment,” Burns said.
Then he tweeted a message, touting his apology:

Do you think he is really sorry? Or just sorry he got caught?
