Kelvin Pena, who is widely known as self-proclaimed deer whisperer Brother Nature on social media, found himself trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. The 20-year-old viral sensation has landed in hot water after a series of disturbing tweets which he posted back in 2011 and 2012 recirculated online.
Some of the tweets found him name dropping celebrities such as Chris Brown and Jay-Z. "When I grow up I wanna be like Chris Brown. So if my girlfriend tried to look through my phone while driving I can choke and punch her :D," one tweet read, while he commented on the "4:44" rapper's look in another tweet, "Jay Z look like a monkey."
There were also tweets which showed his admiration to Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Party. "HEIL HITLER," he posted, while also writing that he was "Hitler. Everyone's a f***ing Nazi." He additionally shared a tweet that read, "Wanna hear a joke? Women's rights."

Pena set his Twitter account private after the tweets resurfaced as people continued to criticize him over the posts. Not too after that, he issued an apology through his account. "I woke up this morning to seeing my old tweets resurface on my timeline and my heart dropped," he said. "I started using twitter when I was 12 years old, I was very impressionable and was seeking attention. 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," he continued. "Everyone changes, everyone learns, and everyone makes mistakes. That's why I spread so much positivity with the platform I was given, to be a role model for the kids. I hope that all of my friends, fans and followers truly understand and believe that I have evolved as a human being and I lead with love. I was a child and am now a man asking you to accept the apology of a young boy."
