He responded to the video on Instagram:
He may not win the show, but he can still be Governor of Virginia:
When American Idol contestants are held to higher standards than governors. https://t.co/jjdPyjVCfE

And, actually, Gov. Ralph Northam’s med school costume was much, much worse:
So ABC yanks a contestant who 4 yrs ago at age 12 appeared in a video next to *someone else* wearing a mask inspired by a horror movie the mob claimed was a KKK hood…
But Jimmy Kimmel, ABC's late-night star, keeps his job after *repeatedly* wearing blackface/using the n-word? https://t.co/mGywpEez0Y

Tell us again that cancel culture isn’t real:
He was 12 years old and standing next to someone wearing some kind of hood on their head. Again, he was 12 years old.
But, yeah, cancel culture isn’t real. https://t.co/ENJuVGXoPa
