Clay Aiken took to Twitter to issue a public apology for defending Donald Trump in the past. Turns out, Clay is seeing things a little differently after Trump's claim that "both sides" are to blame for the Charlottesville, Virginia protest violence.
Last year, Clay told Fox Business, "I don't think he's a fascist. I don't think he's a racist.”"
Last night, however, Clay tweeted: "Remember all those times I defended @realDonaldTrump and believed he was not actually racist? Well... I am a f*****g dumbass. #imsorry."
It appears that the former American Idol and Celebrity Apprentice contestant has seen the light. While Clay has never been a Trump supporter (he backed Hillary Clinton last year), he has been vocal about defending Trump against accusations of racism.
