"I apologize to everyone who was offended by my insensitive tweet about the situation in Egypt. I've dedicated my life to raising awareness about serious social issues, and in hindsight my attempt at humor regarding a nation liberating themselves against oppression was poorly timed and absolutely inappropriate."
Cole's apology didn't prevent the creation of a satirical Twitter account inspired by the gaffe, however, and it's now filled with mock tweets such as, "South Africans won't be able to tear APARTheid my new knits -- they're just that strong!"
