Senator's Son Used Slurs On Twitter

Sen. Jeff Flake's (R-AZ) son Tanner used Twitter to threaten the "faggot" who stole his bike that he "will find you, and ... will beat the crap out of you," joked about an acquaintance stealing one-liners because he's Jewish, and went by the name "n1ggerkiller" in an online game, BuzzFeed reports.

Said Flake: "I'm very disappointed in my teenage son's words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity. This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I've already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well."
