Briscoe made headlines last week after posting the following tweet after the Delaware State Senate passed a bill allowing gay marriage: "The Delaware Senate passed a bill yesterday that allows same sex couples to get married. If that makes you happy, then congratulations!!!!!! ... try and teach my kids that there's nothing wrong with that and I'll f*cking shoot you"
It's not the first time that Briscoe has posted a homophobic remark on Twitter, as he wrote the following in June of 2011: "Damn theres a lot of f-gs out in New York today #WhatTheF-ck"
In Briscoe's apology, he noted that he was playing a character and he sometimes gets caught up with it. He said that he had a third child on the way, and that they don't preach hatred in his home.
