Twitch streamer shares thread explaining what had happened

Following the backlash, Khoi shared a series of tweets in a thread and tried to explain the intentions behind his joke. He wrote: “The quip referenced my own experience as someone with some feminine features I sometimes get called a girl when I have long hair. I sometimes get called a lesbian when I have short hair. I’d just gotten a haircut at the time, so I alluded to this while chatting.”

He further explained: “I never wanna make anyone uncomfy. To those going so far as to call it harmful: no, I didn’t express a viewpoint negatively connotated or otherwise, about “what a lesbian should look like.”

His post further asked followers to not “cheapen what lesbophobia actually is by misconstruing” his words. In the same thread, Khoi also apologized to anyone he had offended.

A look at his apology

Shortly after sharing the thread, Khoi deleted it from his account. He addressed his followers by writing: “deleted the thread. it ended up not conveying what I wanted it to. at risk of causing my confusion, I just wanted to reiterate simply: of course I’m sorry to those whom the quip genuinely hurt.”

He further added: “Guys, I f**ked up. I hear you, I see you, I’ve thought about it and I want to say I’m really sorry to those that I’ve hurt with my comments. in trying to explain my intentions and perspective I missed the mark. I didn’t take the time to reflect and listen and let my defensiveness get the better of me. I promise I am going to do my best to learn from this and watch my words and intentions moving forward. to those of you who I hurt, I am genuinely sorry, and I hope you can forgive me.”
