You may know Kelvin Peña by his social media personality, Brother Nature, the young animal enthusiast who posts videos of himself with wild animals. Although Brother Nature and his deer friends, specifically Canela, have taken the internet by storm, someone recently drudged up some past offensive tweets posted by Peña, and people are torn.
Peña, 20, has become a social media celebrity after posting a video of Canela wearing a gold chain and meandering in his yard. After Brother Nature blew up with over two million followers, he was able to create a nonprofit called Everybody Eats, which is aimed at "helping single-parent families during the holidays and after-school kids year-round."
Last year, he used the foundation to help send supplies to hurricane victims in Puerto Rico.
"This does not look good at all," responded one person on the thread.
"Brother Nature really disappointed me," someone else tweeted, adding "I don't even feel comfortable calling him Brother Nature. He will now be referred to as Kelvin Peña."
"I started using twitter when I was 12 years old, I was very impressionable and was seeking attention," Peña wrote. "I am sorry to all of the people that I offended and have let down. I apologize for 12-year-old Kelvin and take total responsibility for my words. Everyone changes, everyone learns, everyone makes mistakes.
"I was a child and am now a man asking you to accept the apology of a young boy," he concluded.
