John Legend is issuing an apology.
The 42-year-old entertainer posted two tweets about
“In 2015 we (my org @freeamerica, @tystiklorius and I) helped elevate Adam John Foss and the concept of progressive prosecutors. I later learned that he used his platform to harm women,” John posted on his Twitter account, tagging his organization, Free America, which is a multi-year campaign to amplify the growing movement to end mass incarceration, as well as his manager, Ty Stiklorius.
John previously spoke with Adam Foss, a former prosecutor, about America’s criminal justice system and inequality within the system. They’ve been linked as far back as 2015.
John continued, “He used my name and association to gain credibility, and while we are committed to a world where people’s lives aren’t defined by their mistakes, it’s unacceptable to use one’s power and influence to harm women. We are so sorry to all of the women he has harmed.”
John and his wife Chrissy Teigen are big activists and she recently donated money to help Black Lives Matter protestors.
