- Two days after the bee, Max DiGiacomo emailed me to apologize for his tweet: "I am sorry for posting racist remarks about the spelling bee. I am deeply regretful of my decision."

- Three days after the bee, John Brossart emailed me. His message read in part: "The wording of the tweet was poor and for that I apologize... I realize the mistake I made in regards to the wording I chose."
