BOSTON (CBS) – A state central apologized Thursday for a argumentative twitter on a Mass.gov account, scarcely 12 hours after a twitter was posted.

The summary on Mass.gov was published during 10:17 p.m. Wednesday, saying “Sexual attack is always avoidable.”

It also enclosed a couple to a blog post on Apr being Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The twitter was private shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday, about 11 hours later.

This reparation was posted by Geoff Kula, Director of Mass.gov, around 10 a.m:

I deeply bewail a summary sent final night per passionate attack and apologize to all passionate attack victims.

We in no approach meant to advise that victims of passionate attack are to censure for a crimes committed opposite them.

To learn some-more about what we can do to fight attack or if we need assistance, please see this blog.

Around noon-time, Kula wrote a longer explanation on a state’s central blog.

In this instance, a author of a passionate attack recognition twitter did not send this twitter to a editorial gatekeeper for review, and instead scheduled a twitter independently.

Having spoken with a author this morning, it is transparent there was no antagonistic vigilant behind a tweet; a twitter inaccurately epitomised a calm in a linked-to blog post, which discussed services accessible for victims of passionate assault.

The twitter author agrees that perpetrators of passionate attack are always during fault, and it was never a author’s vigilant to blame victims for crimes perpetrated.

The author has concluded to attend in passionate attack recognition training.

The twitter generated a array of complaints on Twitter overnight.

Six some-more tweets were posted on a @MassGov comment via a night into Thursday morning, though nothing responded to a complaints since they were apparently scheduled to automatically tell during pre-set times.
