BOSTON (CBS) – A state official apologized Thursday for a controversial tweet on the Mass.gov account, nearly 12 hours after the tweet was posted.
The message on Mass.gov was published at 10:17 p.m. Wednesday, saying “Sexual assault is always avoidable.”
It also included a link to a blog post on April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The tweet was removed shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday, about 11 hours later.
