Mark Ronson Just Responded To Backlash After He Said He Identifies As "Sapiosexual"
"I do not consider myself part of any marginalised community and I apologise if anybody misunderstood or took offence to it."
It's safe to say the announcement faced some backlash, with people arguing the term delegitimises the prejudice faced by members of the LGBTQ community.
But Ronson has now clarified his comments in an interview with Rolling Stone, apologising for any misunderstanding his words may have caused.
He explained that GMB had done a segment on "sapiosexuality" before his interview, and when he was asked by the hosts if he identified with it, he simply said yes.
"I do not consider myself part of any marginalised community," he told Rolling Stone, "and I apologise if anybody misunderstood or took offence to it."
He went on to say that he felt his comments were taken out of context by outlets that reported on him "coming out".
It sounds like I went on a TV show to be like, "Guys, I have some big news!" And the fact that I would go on and sort of declare myself — like as a heterosexual white male — part of any marginalised community was terrifying to me, or just embarrassing.
