City council member Tyrone Grandstrand says his Facebook status calling fellow members 'dead white males' were not his words. Council members received an email Tuesday night with a screen shot of a Facebook status posted by Tyrone Grandstrand.

The post, seeking support for an expanded recycling program, reads: the recycling programs "seems that it is actually a very popular idea among the 40 & under demographic (though not among the dead white males on the council)."

Council member Dana Sande told WDAZ he sent the email that notified fellow members of the status.

Grandstrand has since removed the post. He has no comment.
