Dharun Ravi “Sorry About Tyler Clementi”

The former Rutgers University student convicted in the webcam spying case that ended in his gay roommate’s suicide says he was insensitive, but not biased.

Dharun Ravi  tells The Star-Ledger of Newark  he didn’t act out of hate and wasn’t uncomfortable with Tyler Clementi’s sexual orientation.

Ravi says he was concerned about the appearance of the 30-year-old man who Clementi met online and had invited to their dorm room.

The 20-year-old says he would have done the same thing if Clementi had invited a girl who “looked as strange” as the man.

Ravi doesn’t regret not taking a plea deal that would have spared him prison. Ravi says he would have had to testify that he did what he did to intimidate Clementi and “that would be a lie.” He adds he’s “very sorry about Tyler.”
