PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Providence mayoral candidate Kobi Dennis is apologizing for comments he made about the assistant principal at Central High School.

Dennis called for the firing of Assistant Principal Thomas Bacon after a video surfaced showing Bacon pinning down 15-year-old Amare Pemberton, a sophomore at CHS, in the school’s cafeteria.

Dennis said in Facebook post Friday that he is sorry if he hurt the feeling of educators who are “trying to make a difference in our schools.”

Bacon has since resigned.
