The founder and former CEO of BET apologized Today to Sen. Barack Obama for his comments this week regarding the Democratic presidential hopeful’s acknowledged drug use as a teenager. Johnson said, "As an African-American, I’m frankly insulted that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood that — and I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in his book — when they have been involved." Bob Johnson, said he sent Obama a letter and also was reaching out by phone. "I’m writing to apologize to you and your family personally for the uncalled-for comments I made at a recent Clinton event. In my zeal to support Senator Clinton, I made some very inappropriate remarks for which I am truly sorry. I hope that you will accept this apology. Good luck on the campaign trail." The Obama campaign said it will respond to the development soon. Johnson’s apology comes as both the Clinton and Obama campaigns step up their efforts to win South Carolina’s coveted African-American vote on January 26 source
