It looks like Pastor Jamal Bryant is retracting the statements he made about the late Kevin Samuels.
We recently reported that Pastor Bryant seemingly called out the late Samuels during his sermon last Sunday. He mocked the fact a GoFundMe account was created to pay for his funeral expenses.
In a recent Instagram post, Pastor Bryant issued his apology and said, “Benjamin Franklin once said, “the best way to mess up an apology is to add an excuse.” I extend my deepest condolences and apologies to Kevin Samuels’ family and friends. Thank you to all who purposed to jeep me accountable. We grow from mistakes and birth maturity. Humility will always defeat arrogance. We grow as we go!”
Samuels’ family has since addressed the statement of the GoFundMe account that was created to cover funeral expenses.
TMZ tweeted out, “Kevin Samuels’ family says an imposter is behind a GoFundMe created to raise money for his funeral expenses, and even though they were offered the cash… they won’t accept the money.”
Kevin Samuels passed away on May 5th after he was found unresponsive in his home. His cause of death was an alleged cardiac arrest. He was 56 years old.
