Bozeman lawmaker apologizes for social media post about Kamala Harris


BOZEMAN — A Bozeman lawmaker says he’s sorry for calling Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris, a slur with sexual connotations on social media.

Kerry White has represented southern Gallatin County for the last four terms in the Montana Legislature and told MTN News in a phone call Friday morning that he made a mistake.


The Republican lawmaker made the inappropriate post on social media on November 17th.

The social media post started getting traction after a left-wing blog called the Montana Post flagged the post on Twitter.

The post has since been deleted, but White told MTN News he was apologetic, saying, “I made a mistake. In times of turmoil, I allowed anger to get in the way of good judgement. I apologize for what happened and it won’t happen again.”

The Montana Post says White also posted a meme promoting misinformation and violence to liberals.

White says he did not make that post and claims it was photo-shopped.

White was recently appointed as an adviser to governor-elect Gianforte’s Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks advisory board.

MTN News reached out to the transition office for a comment and did not hear back from them in time for broadcast.
