Daughter of Nick Saban apologizes for tweet questioning Ohio State's COVID issues
After a controversial, now-deleted tweet accusing Ohio State of using COVID-19 issues to push back the College Football Playoff National Championship Game to get quarterback Justin Fields healthy, Kristen Saban Setas has taken to the platform to apologize.
“I’m so sorry,” Setas’ initial tweet reads, before posting a statement expressing her remorse.
“The tweet I posted earlier this evening was uncalled for and hurtful,” Setas wrote. “I made a huge mistake and I apologize. In a moment of frustration, I let my anger get the best of me and acted before thinking. I sincerely regret my choice of reckless words. In no way did I intend to undermine the seriousness of the global pandemic and my heart goes out to those it has affected.
“The health and safety of others is first and foremost and I pray that we all can find peace soon. I am ashamed and embarrassed. I hope you can forgive me.”
