If Carson King had been defiant about the two tweets from when he was 16 or doubled down, I would get why the Register would mention them but according the paper, he was deeply remorseful. I fail to see how it was newsworthy, especially given the good work he’s been doing
2. With respect to this story, the Register and the reporter @aaronpcalvin don’t deserve this level of kindness but here we are.
3. What a hypocritical disgrace.
4. If you’re going to pull up someone’s old tweets, write about them, and you have old racist tweets of your own, at least have the courage to take the heat, @aaronpcalvin.
Taking your account private is cowardly.
