Awful Teen Socialite Peter Brant II Says He Was Just Joking About Wanting To Kill President Obama
You might remember 18-year-old gay socialite Peter Brant II from that set of photos from two years ago in which he was getting uncomfortably close with his mother, model Stephanie Seymour on the beach in Saint Barts.
Well, he went and did something really stupid. Yesterday a conversation between teen billionaire Peter Brant II and friend Andrew Warren–began circulating the internet after Brant posted it to Instagram.
Warren, whose location on Twitter is listed as “NYC/HAMPTONS,” joked that the election results were going to make him “poor,” to which Brant replied, “I have a contingency plan. Kill Obama hahaha.” The remark was then followed by a joke about women’s rights.
Brant released a statement about the exchange to Fashionista…
“I would just like to say I never intended to offend everyone. I’m really not that political and after the election all my friends and I, republicans and democrats alike were instagramming political cartoons and poking fun at each other on Facebook. I didn’t mean what I said, and obviously I have no intention of killing anyone, Obama is now our president and as such I support him. What Andrew and I said was stupid and I’m sorry to anyone we offended. This is a time when we need to be unified as a country and not let any petty stupid humor get in the way of that.”
What an idiot! Petty, with an emphasis on stupid, humor indeed!
