Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) Apologizes For Son’s Offensive Slurs On Twitter

Report: Flake Apologizes For Son’s Offensive Slurs On Twitter PERRY STEIN 4:03 PM EDT, WEDNESDAY JUNE 12, 2013 Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) high school aged son, Tanner, repeatedly published racial, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs on his personal Twitter account, Buzzfeed reported on Wednesday. On his Twitter account earlier this year, which has since been locked, Tanner threatened the "faggot" who stole his bike, writing I "will find you, and...will beat the crap out of you." He also called someone a "Jew" for stealing people's ideas and went by the name “n1ggerkiller” in an online game, which he posted screenshots of on his Twitter account. In a statement to Buzzfeed, Sen. Flake said he was "disappointed" in his son's words and apologized for the "insensitivity." "This language is unacceptable, anywhere," Flake continued. "Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well."
