Late Tuesday, Alexi McCammond, a political reporter for Axios tweeted that Charles Barkley had threatened her while they were having a political debate. Early Wednesday, Barkley released an apology released through his team. However, Alexi also found herself issuing an apology after some of her old tweets resurfaced.

Last night she took to Twitter and said, “Just FYI Charles Barkley told me tonight “I don’t hit women but if I did I would hit you,” and then when I objected to that he told me I ‘couldn’t take a joke.’”

She then proceeded to say his comment was because he talked about his love for Deval Patrick, however, once someone from Pete Buttigieg’s campaign joined the conversation, she claims he then proclaimed his love for Buttigieg. However, she reminded him of his love for Patrick, and that reportedly led to his comment.

Barkley said in his apology, “My comment was inappropriate and unacceptable. It was an attempted joke that wasn’t funny at all. There’s no excuse for it and I apologize.”

However, she wasn’t too accepting of his apology and said, “The comments Charles Barkley made to me are not acceptable. Threats of violence are not a joke, & no person deserves to be hit or threatened like that. Silence only allows the culture of misogyny to fester. And those kinds of comments don’t merit off-the-record protections.”

Nonetheless, Alexi found herself issuing her own apology after some of her past tweets were brought to the light. In her apology tweet, she said, “Today I was reminded of some past insensitive tweets, and I am deeply sorry to anyone I offended. I have since deleted those tweets as they do not reflect my views or who I am today.”

Although the tweets no longer exist, some people were able to capture them before they were removed.
