"I am stepping back from my career and I am stepping down from my position of power and privilege in this community because I want to take responsibility and accountability," he wrote. "I feel intense compassion for anyone I may have hurt. I truly hope you allow me a chance to work together toward healing."
"The rumors you are hearing are untrue, but I realize some of my past actions have caused pain, and I am deeply sorry," he continued. "I am handing off our nonprofit Be Interactive to a diverse team to continue without my involvement moving forward. Sometime in the future I may share more thoughts on these matters, but for now, please take care of each other and I wish you all the brightest future."
