The Blog post is titled ” I’m a creep.I’m sorry” where he started off as

“By now you may have heard I fucked up, and people are calling me a creep.

While I’d like to believe that I’m not a bad or evil person, regardless it’s clear that some of my past actions have hurt or offended several women.

And I probably deserve to be called a creep.

So, what did I do?”

He also admitted of taking advances towards multiple woman in work related scenarios . He stated that he selfishly took advantage of those situations. He admitted that he was sorry for that but nothing can be changed.

The accusations caused McClure to step down from his role as the CEO of 500 Startup’s one of Silicon Valley’s most active startup incubators.
