For whatever reason, Lio thought it would be a good idea to make a quick joke about Emma’s dismissal. Here’s the tweet he has since deleted (Taz convinced him to remove it), along with Peyton Royce’s response:
So far so bad. Taz then suggested he remove it:
hey young blood, than maybe u should delete that tweet. https://t.co/qxAXhpn55E

He then issued this apology:

It kinda didn’t go over. Have a read:
Apologising because people didn't like your joke, not for joking about someone losing their job. Also, try the English classes at the PC. 👍 https://t.co/tZnaDzqB5K

Reading that made my brain melt. Good luck. You’re going to need it.

These are just some of the responses. We’ll keep an eye on them and if any of them diverge from this general theme, we’ll add them.
Botch Take: He was likely just trying to be flippant and cute but this was a bad idea. He then made things worse by apologizing that what he said was taken wrong – essentially putting the blame elsewhere and not taking responsibility for what he said. The wording throughout is also rather arrogant. He’s brand new to the PC and this definitely NOT a good way to work your way up the ladder. I’m a fan of his and have been for a while but if he’s not careful, he’ll end up residing in the doghouse.
