"You know what, maybe this is actually a good thing. Here's the thing, we would all agree that Haiti is just in shambles, it's just a horrible country, it's just dirt, it's poverty stricken, they need a cleansing, maybe a half a million Haitians that will end up not being around tomorrow...It's a cleanse," he elaborated on his radio show.
Eventually The Love Sponge backed down and issued an apology tweet: "Sometimes u say things that u can't take back. So I'm man enough now to say I'm sorry for those I offended. Bubba."
