Meanwhile, Wesleyan’s student newspaper reported that Ewell had posted an apology to Facebook before making his account private.
“I spoke out of anger which I should not have done. Second, I don’t believe what I said. I have friends and family who are Democrats and I love them dearly,” Ewell said, according to the student newspaper. “We all need to be a little less quick to anger and a little more willing to forgive and that certainly applies to me . . . I am a Christian work-in-progress for sure.”
