Outer Banks star Chase Stokes apologizes for the racially insensitive and homophobic posts

Actor Chase Stokes, who stars on the new Netflix series Outer Banks, is in hot water over racially insensitive, homophobic and derogatory social media posts from the past that recently re-surfaced.

The 27-year-old apologized in a now-deleted tweet for his offensive words on Monday, but shortly after releasing the apology, Chase scrubbed his Twitter account and deleted his entire story.

He returned to the platform a short time later, tweeting that he was "trying to resolve this" and claiming that his account had been hacked.

In the long-form mea culpa, Chase began by saying that he was going to ’address this’ and ’was not hiding it.’ A strange statement considering that he later deleted the whole apology.

‘I consulted in one of my closest friends just like everyone else. I've posted insensitive tweets,” he wrote. “My Facebook has been hacked countless times. The picture is also not of me or anyone I know. '

‘Again, I am incredibly sorry. I really am. I hope you guys see what I am currently doing and how I continue to do the right thing by being respectful in today's climate, ’he continued. Adding that his words do not excuse’ what he had said.
