Erich Schwer reacts after being condemned for a black school photo

Erich Schwer recently became a hot topic on social media after several controversial photos of him from high school began to surface online.

A Reddit user recently shared a traditional yearbook photo of Schwer, where he appears to be wearing blackface.

Additionally, in the image, Schwer wore an afro wig and paired it with dark face makeup. He was also wearing a colorful shirt.

Schwer captioned the photo in the yearbook with a quote that read, “It was puffy.”

However, the 29-year-old real estate analyst quickly drew a lot of criticism from social media users.

However, Schwer took to Instagram to apologize for his actions on Thursday afternoon. He shared an image of an empty black square.

Schwer captioned the post with a caption that read, “I apologize from the bottom of my heart for the insensitive photo of me in blackface from my high school yearbook that has been circulating.

He added: “What I thought at the time was an expression of my love for Jimi Hendrix was nothing but ignorance.”

Schwer went on to write, “I was naive about the harmful consequences of my actions for the black community and those closest to me. I will forever regret my abusive and harmful behavior.’

He ended the message by saying, “I am deeply ashamed of my actions and understand that my apology is only the first step in taking responsibility.”
