Catfish’s Nev Schulman Sparks Outrage After This “Racist” Joke

Project Casting

Catfish star Nev Schulman sparked outrage on Twitter on Tuesday after sharing an offensive joke during BET’s Black Girls Live. 

In the since-deleted tweet, Schulman, 31, wrote #BlackGirlsRock I totally agree. They also tend to #Catfish a lot. Just saying.”

Following the backlash, Schulman took to Twitter to apologize, crediting the user who reached out to him to directly address the issue.

“Thank you #melaninporn for taking the time to help me understand the issues POC [people of color] deal w/,” he noted.

“You’re right to be upset & don’t have to accept my apology, but I am deeply sorry to those whom I offended and learned a valuable lesson,” Schulman continued.

This is not the first time Schulman pissed people off. After condemning physical violence against women on Twitter two years ago, the reality star confirmed a rumor that he had been expelled for punching a woman in college.

“In college, I was in a situation where I was forced to defend myself, after being suddenly attacked. Charges were brought, but my case was almost immediately dismissed as this was clearly a case of self-defense. My post was meant to raise awareness and support for everyone affected by the awful abuses of domestic violence,” he said.
