Two days ago, Sacco tweeted: “”Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!” What is even more shocking was Sacco’s revelation that her father is of South African decent: “”This is my father’s country, and I was born here. I cherish my ties to South Africa and my frequent visits, but I am in anguish knowing that my remarks have caused pain to so many people here; my family, friends and fellow South Africans. I am very sorry for the pain I caused.”

IAC (InterActive Corp), Sacco’s now former employer issued a statement, condemning the offensive statement: “”There is no excuse for the hateful statements that have been made and we condemn them unequivocally. We hope, however, that time and action, and the forgiving human spirit, will not result in the wholesale condemnation of an individual who we have otherwise known to be a decent person at core.”
