Questlove, the lead drummer for the R&B group Roots said the only reason a jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of murder charges was because she is white.
Its great to be white #notguilty, he said referring to the acquittal of all charges against Casey Anthony, a Florida mother accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
His comments angered some of the 1,623,733 people who follow the critcally acclaimed drummer on Twitter.
Let's not make this about race. OJ got off, too, said David of Los Angeles.
The drummer didn't immediately apologize, first saying Truth Hurts huh then adding OJ's white. Trust seconds later.
Finally, Questlove who appears with President Barack Obama in his Twitter icon issued an apology of sorts for his remarks.
Apologies to the 1.6 who were offended by my commentary. Casey Anthony was found not guilty by a jury of her peers. #andthatsthewayitisHUH
