In an email, Geraldo said:
"I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager."
The controversial talk show host continued:
"I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my ‘very practical and potentially life-saving campaign' urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies."
Rivera said in the email to POLITICO Tuesday:
"By putting responsibility on what kids wear instead of how people react to them I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager,” and that he was offering a “heartfelt apology” to anyone he may have offended in his “crusade to warn minority families of the danger to their young sons inherent in gangsta style clothing; like hoodies."
We're glad to see Geraldo has renounced his insensitive comments about Trayvon Martin, who was shot to death by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Florida a month ago. #JusticeForTrayvon #HoodiesUp
