Matt Espinosa Angrily Hits Back: “It Was My Friend!”
On his Snapchat (@notmattespinosa), Matt was fuming. He put the blame on his “friend”. “Guys, I am very mad right now because I was on my phone. And someone posted something very racist on my Snapchat.”
“It was one of my friends, who I thought I could trust with my phone,” he continued. “So when I went on a rollercoaster, I didn’t want to bring my phone because I almost dropped it one time. And then he took that phone and went to some ‘fake gun, fake dude on a piano’ thing. It was like a target practice thing and it was one of the people for decoration, or whatever.”
“And the next thing I know… there was a story posted. But I did not see it until 40 minutes later.”
“First, I am not a racist! Second, that was not me who posted that. Third, I know where my heart lies and I know where I belong in this world. So do NOT tell me I am something that I am not.”
“Every single day I use my voice and I use my social media to make this world a better place. To make everyone live in harmony. So you cannot tell me that I do not do that. Because that is all I focus on! I am sorry for all the confusion. I am sorry if any feelings got hurt. I did not want any of that to happen, guys. I love each and every one of you. Equally. And let’s just keep moving forward. Espinosas ’till we die!”
