T.I., whose comments on Hillary Clinton's candidacy are best summed up by his conclusion that "you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman],” has officially apologized after his remarks went viral earlier today (Oct. 13). 

T.I. on Hillary Clinton: 'I Can't Vote For the Leader of the Free World To Be A Woman'

"My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong," the rapper posted on Twitter, adding, "I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended." 

In the initial interview with DJ Whoo Kid, T.I. had explained his resistance to a woman in office by saying "women make rash decisions emotionally -- they make very permanent, cemented decisions -- and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke."
