Brandt Jean Says Of Controversial Hug: ‘I Don’t Like The Attention!’

Brandt Jean, the brother of murder victim Botham Jean, has said here that  he does not like the attention that his controversial embrace of convicted killer Amber Guyger has attracted.

Brandt’s  forgiveness and embrace of the former Dallas cop who fatally shot his brother in September last year reverberated around the world, attracting both praise and condemnation.

The move came after Guyger was sentenced to ten years in jail last month for killing Botham Jean.

“I don’t like the attention. I dreamt of being famous – but not this way,” Brandt told Hot 7 News Wednesday evening.

“I don’t like it,” he asserted.

Explaining that he was not always in the forgiving mood, Brandt told the local television channel that he could not hold ‘that  in my heart forever’.

He said Guyger deserved to be convicted and given some time in prison.

However Brandt observed that his goal at the time was to get her to change her life.

According to Hot 7 News, the Jean family has been approached by documentary and film makers to film their story.

But the news channel quoted Brandt as saying that he is not interested in going down that road.


  1. Y’all should invite her to your home and also give her a part of the money you will receive from the civil suit. In that way y’all can be a big happy family full of forgiveness

  2. Bike life then I guess u must b white??? Zabo it’s only an explanation the guy made for wat he did…an explanation….url ready to get heart attack over all this wen that scenario is already in history….I think some of u talking about Brandt like u swear url eh move on with this thing yet… God to judge to us all…

  3. Man you will always get attention for being a sellout period! The whole world knows about your cowardly act!
