Erich Schweier responds after being slammed for school blackface photo

Erich Schwer recently became a trending topic on social media after controversial photos from high school started popping up on the internet.

A Reddit user recently shared a traditional yearbook photo of Schwer, who appears to be wearing a black face.

Additionally, in the photo, Schweer is wearing an Afro-style wig and has dark makeup on her face. He also wore a colorful shirt.

Schwer added a line to the yearbook photo, which read, “It’s bloated.”

Nevertheless, the 29-year-old real estate analyst was quickly criticized by Internet users.

Schweier, however, took to Instagram on Thursday afternoon to apologize for his actions. He shared an image of a blank black square.

Schweier pointed to the headline of the article, which read, “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive photo of me in blackface circulating in my high school yearbook.

He added: “I thought it was an expression of my love for Jimi Hendrix, but ignorance.”

Schweier further wrote, “I was naive about the hurtful effect my actions had on the black community and on my loved ones. I will forever regret my offensive and disruptive actions.

He concluded: “I am deeply ashamed of my actions and understand that my apology is only the first step towards accountability.”

Social media users react to Erich Schwer’s apology

Many fans praised Erich Schweer for publicly apologizing for his mistakes. They expressed their gratitude in the comments section of his post.

One fan said, “Just confession and repentance. Keep going and keep improving!

Additionally, others added, “The best thing you can do right now is prove you mean it and take responsibility for what you say. It’s the right way to apologize. Good luck. ‘

However, despite Schwer’s apology, many users remained unhappy as they continued to weigh in on the blackface images.

One user wrote, “I asked Erich to apologize for his high school blackface. But honestly, if that photo never reappears, he’ll never apologize.

Another user commented, “The Bachelor would be a joke if they mentioned Nate and his two girlfriends instead of Erich doing blackface on YEARBOOK.”
