Andrea Lee Issues Revised Apology Following Revelation of Her Husband’s Nazi Tattoos

Andrea Lee is seeking forgiveness after lashing out over the weekend following the revelation that her husband and trainer has a pair of Nazi tattoos on his arms.

The controversy started after Lee posted a photo with Aaron on her Instagram account (that was later deleted) and it didn’t take long for everyone to notice he had a Nazi swastika tattooed on his forearm.

A search of past photos of Aaron revealed a second tattoo — a Nazi S.S. bolt on his other arm. In response to the tattoos being brought to light, Lee responded with a vitriolic post on social media where she called people reacting to the news ‘sensitive ass mofos’.

Lee later deleted that post as well and issued a new apology on her Twitter account on Sunday:

“My comments the day before were meant to just defend my husband not his tattoo. I never intended to make light of the situation, the history of the symbol or dismiss anyone that was offended, This mistakes he made in his youth are not a representation of who he is today, which is a man that loves and respects everyone. Donny was my coach long before we got together, when I first met Donny, I question him too about his tattoos and he explained to me about his past and who he was now and how he’d changed. The more I got to know him as a person the less I noticed his skin.

“I’m truly sorry for responding the other day the way I did, if you think I don’t I DO! I’m not racist, I’m not a nazi and I don’t hate people and neither does Donny. I’ve always believed in the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you, I personally try to live by that and I tell my daughter that all the time. I Also don’t believe in hating a person for things they have done to you or things have done, Period, If I don’t like someone. I never ever say that I hate people or a person, if anything I just extremely dislike a person, but never hate.

“I’m the type of person to help anyone out no matter the color of their skin or the religion they believe in, I don’t judge people based off a single thing or action or because of what someone else said about them, I choke to get to know them first and then make my own person opinion, that’s how I am that’s who I have always been.

“So I am sorry if I offended anyone, I apologize, please forgive me

“Please read. This is from my heart. Whether you hate me or not I remain sincerely sorry and will continue to do good by people regardless.”

For his part, Aaron issued an apology of his own while also adding that he wouldn’t be covering up or having a procedure to remove the tattoos from his arms.

“Many of you have offered solutions to my problem,” Aaron wrote. “Cover ups, laser removal, etc. Please trust me when I say I’ve explored both avenues and unfortunately neither is an option for me.

“In the meantime, I understand that many won’t forgive me and don’t believe in second chances and to you I say I understand.”
