So, I used a gif in the discussion area of the MPP with Brasil I proposed yesterday which offended some people. First thing is to apologize to my Brazilian friends who were offended. That was not my intent, nor would it ever be.
I was shown that gif originally by a Brazilian, about a Brazilian, in a room populated primarily by...Brazilians. I thought it was akin to the 'fat American hamburger' joke, not the '9/11 kill you all' insults (both of which I regularly hear from my friends in Brasil). Apparently, it's closer to the latter than the former. Again, my apologies for that.
I've already spoken to your leadership privately, but because of our long history with Brasil, and even my brief time there as a citizen when I got to know a lot of you better, an article is warranted. Please consider this my personal apology to each of you offended.
I would also like to thank the 20-30 Brazilians who sent me friend requests since last night. New friends are always good, thanks for the add guys.
Any Brazilian who wants to talk to me about this can message me any time, my inbox is always open. I'll be out for most of the day (it is the weekend, after all), but I will respond as soon as I get home.
