Damon Wayans Jr. is apologizing for old tweets that he made almost ten years ago.

The tweets were made back in 2010 and 2011 and have since been deleted. In the tweets, Damon had used the term "tranny b*tch," "no homo" and even the word "f*g."

"When I was a young comic trying to find my voice, I made some immature and hurtful tweets that I deeply regret at the expense of the LGBTQ community. When I tweeted those comments, almost 10 years ago, I was unaware of the emotional impact they could have," he told Deadline. 

"I am not excusing that behavior but that is not who I am today. Society evolved and so have I and it is something I will continue to do both personally and professionally. Continued learning, acceptance and thoughtful words are all important actions that will help make society a kinder and safer place for all people. You know better, you do better."

Damon as recently named as the executive producer of a new CW show, 'Glamorous.'

The series focuses on a gender non-conforming high school graduate who nabs an internship at a cosmetics company whose products he gave poor reviews to on Youtube.

"I am very proud of the work we are doing at Two Shakes entertainment. The company was founded with the mission of working with diverse voices, both in front and behind the camera," Damon continued in his statement. 

"When Glamourous was pitched to us I thought it was brilliant, heartwarming and important. We will continue to be committed to pursuing protagonists who don't traditionally get to be at the center of a show and bringing their stories to the screen."
