Radio host Charlamagne has apologized to former NBA player Kwame Brown for slandering his family.
Brown called out The Breakfast Club host for his past rapey behavior involving young girls.
Brown roasted Charlamagne in a YouTube video after Charlamagne told listeners to “leave Kwame Brown alone” because of a violent incident involving Brown’s father who was accused of killing his girlfriend with an axe.
He apologized to Brown and his family for “unintentionally triggering trauma.”
“I want to apologize to Kwame Brown and Kwame Brown’s family. I want to apologize to his father Bill Brown and the family of Bill Brown,” he said after giving himself “Donkey Of The Day.”
“Last week on the radio, in my attempt to defend a Charleston, South Carolina brother like myself, I revealed too much information about that man’s family,” he said.
“Some things just don’t need to be said on the radio and they definitely don’t need to be said by me. When I look back on the way I communicated that, I communicated it all wrong. And I unintentionally triggered trauma in a lot of folks I grew up with who I genuinely love. I’m sure I caused a lot of pain for not only Kwame Brown, but his family, especially his family in my hometown of Moncks Corner, South Carolina. You know how I know? Because I spoke to them.”
Brown had previously called Charlamagne a “rapist” and “rape case guy that actually pled guilty and got away with it.”
Charlamagne reportedly had his attorney send a cease-and-desist to Brown.
