White ultimately deleted the tweet when many social media users said they were offended. But he criticized people for re-tweeting his statement to stir up controversy.
"It's crazy how people on twitter want me to get in trouble for a tweet that they are retweeting because they want something to happen," he said Saturday.
White finally came round to an apology on Sunday, when he wrote:
"I understand my tweet last nite was extreme. I never meant for the people to do that. I was shocked and upset about the verdict. I am sorry."
