Here are two things we know to be true: Black girls rock. And people tweet stupid, stupid things.

These two truths converged when BET aired their Black Girls Rock! special this week and Catfish creator Nev Schulman tweeted and later deleted, "#BlackGirlsRock I totally agree. They also tend to #catfish a lot. Just sayin''"

After receiving considerable backlash on Twitter, the 31-year-old apologized, writing, "You're right to be upset & don't have to accept my apology, but I am deeply sorry to those whom I offended and learned a valuable lesson."

"Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak with me tonight and promote communication and understanding," Schulman added. "Nothing but love and respect."

Catfish co-host Max Joseph recently revealed he was cyberstalked and tricked into believing his wife was help hostage. Find out what happened in the video below.
