Johnson tweeted out an apology later Friday morning.
“I just made a huge error in judgement and want to apologize to Vince and his wife for comments I made earlier today on a Houston radio show,” @TedJ52 tweeted. “Vince and his family are outstanding people who I have admired since they arrived in [New England]. I learned a big lesson today and feel terrible.”
Johnson later added: “I have personally apologized to the family and feel awful. It was a huge error in judgment and I’m sorry for upsetting Vince’s family. The last thing I will say about this is that I understand the criticism [and] will own my poor decision.”
