A Michigan state senator has apologized for showing up to the state Capitol wearing a face mask that appeared to depict the Confederate flag.


"I’m sorry for my choice of pattern on the face mask I wore yesterday on the Senate floor. I did not intend to offend anyone; however, I realize that I did, and for that I am sorry," Republican Senator Dale Zorn tweeted Saturday morning, adding that he doesn't support "the things this pattern represents."


WLNS-TV in Lansing, Michigan first reported that Zorn wore a red mask with blue stripes and white stars on the state Senate floor on Friday.

He also said that "even if it was a Confederate flag, you know, we should be talking about teaching our national history in schools, and that’s part of our national history."
