On his verified Twitter page he apologizes on Saturday. Kirk expressed how he regretted using the language he used and how it was at a time of anger.
“Many of you know that I have an older son named Kerrion Franklin, in May he’ll be 33,” the choir director said. “For many years we have had a toxic relationship with him as a family.”
“Recently my son and I had an argument that he chose to record,” Franklin said. “I felt extremely disrespected in that conversation and I lost my temper and I said words that are not appropriate and I am sincerely sorry to all of you. I sincerely apologize.”
Kirk says to talk about the toxicity that is in the family, and how he and his wife are trying to mend their relationship with Kerrion. They went to counseling and face-timed a family therapist but were not successful as hoped.
“I’m not perfect,” Franklin says. “I’m human and I’m gonna make mistakes and I’m trying to get it right. Please keep me and your family in your prayers.”
Franklin says his relationship with his son is very important to him, he will always be there for Kerrion through thick and thin. He doesn’t want Kerrion to experience what he did growing up.
“I never want him to feel what I felt not having a father,” Franklin said. “It’s important for me, because what if that call is the call that things change? So I never know. And I never want to give up.”
