It seems I continue to learn the hard way. And what I need to do right now is apologize. I don't want to ruin it with an excuse. . .and will rather try and offer an explanation of my heart and intentions behind what I did. So, for those of you who saw my post this last weekend about rape. . .please know I am offering my sincere apology for any offence taken, I pushed that "post" button in a moment of fervor and did not think through how it could be perceived. . .my heart is sickened with the knowledge that I offended and possibly alienated anyone of my friends, staff or customers. As I build this company and struggle to find the voice of the brand that pushes limits, is relevant, fearless and brave I made a mistake and for that I am truly sorry. The responsibility of having a public voice for a brand is huge and I value every single person who let's GORP into their life. . .in this instance I failed at communicating in a responsible way. . . and I apologize.
You may or may not want/need to read further. . .but here I will offer an explanation of my heart's intent.
