LA PLATA, Md. (WUSA9) -- A 20-year old man arrested for sending a Tweet that appeared to call on people to "Kill all White People" in La Plata, Md. got a chance to explain himself in court Friday.

Carlos Hollins' attorney, James E. Farmer said the Tweet was intended as a sarcastic commentary about "Black Lives Matter" protestors going too far and there was never any actual threat.

In fact, Hollins has a history of sending tweets about racial unity, according to his attorney.

Hollins was given a probation without judgment sentence, which means there will be no conviction on his record if he stays out of trouble.
