Producer Mark Ronson has apologized for coming out as sapiosexual after receiving backlash.
"I do not consider myself part of any marginalized community, and I apologize if anybody misunderstood or took offense to it," Ronson told Rolling Stone.
Ronson claims that Good Morning Britain had recently done a segment on sapiosexuality, and asked Ronson what he thought of the term. He said that they explained that a sapiosexual is "When you're attracted to intelligence," to which he replied, "That sounds great. Of course, who wouldn't be?"
"[Then] they were like basically like, 'OK, Mark Ronson identifies as sapiosexual,'" Ronson recalled. "Then they proceeded to ask me about Miley Cyrus' dating life, and something else I probably wasn't that informed to talk about, either, and then that was it."
He added, "It sounds like I went on a TV show to be like, 'Guys, I have some big news!' And the fact that I would go on and sort of declare myself — like as a heterosexual white male — part of any marginalized community was terrifying to me, or just embarrassing."
