Author Nicholas Sparks has made another comment on last week’s Daily Beast article — this time, to apologize for having “potentially hurt young people and members of the LGBTQ community.”

His statement, issued Monday on Twitter, addressed leaked emails between him and the former headmaster of the school he co-founded.

Those emails indicated that Sparks had banned the creation of an LGBTQ club at the Epiphany School of Global Studies.

On Monday, Sparks acknowledged that the emails did appear to be bigoted, but that he was actually complaining about the manner in which the club was formed, not the club's existence. 

The bestselling author of A Walk to Remember and The Notebook additionally insisted that he believes in "the principle that all individuals should be free to love, marry and have children with the person they choose, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.”
