Well, here’s something you don’t see every day. No, seriously. A Vox writer known for deception admitting he screwed up.
Aaron Rupar has apologized to Greg Gutfeld for falsely smearing him as a racist following Gutfeld’s recent appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show:
While watching Tucker Carlson's show on Tuesday I posted a tweet in which I quoted @greggutfeld remarks I misheard & falsely attributed a racially charged comment to him. I deleted it as soon as I became aware of my error, but I also want to publicly apologize to Greg. I'm sorry.

For what it’s worth, Gutfeld has accepted Rupar’s apology:

You won’t hear us say this often, but good on Aaron Rupar.
Good on you, Aaron.
