Ian McCall apologizes for tweets about hating the homeless

Ian McCall issued an apology for his tweets that talked about hating the homeless, stating that he wasn't talking about all homeless. He just despises junkies.

Ian McCall was the latest UFC fighter to take to Twitter and unleash some regrettable comments. McCall's tweets focused on his "hatred" for the homeless.

He did eventually backtrack some by clarifying that he only hated junkies who were homeless, and used his own struggles with addiction as a sort of shield from criticism. But that didn't last too long before he took to The Underground to issue an apology:

I was having a shitty day and some junkie was talking shit to me and i took it to twitter. I have nothing against the homeless I dont even know why i used that word, it has nothing to do with psychiatric people or PTSD people. Anyone that knows me knows how much charity work i do. I just had a problem with this junkie talking shit to me and i apologize to everyone that i said that. I used to have a drug problem now i despise junkies. I'm sorry for offending anyone it came off as a total asshole thing to say and for that i am sorry.

I wonder how much of Ian's charity work is with drug addicts and if they're aware that he "despises" them.
