KOKOMO, Ind. (WTHR) - A Kokomo city councilman is facing controversy over an old post on social media.

Greg Jones says he regrets inflammatory comments about Muslim Americans.

Our partners at The Kokomo Tribune say the post was made in 2015 and recently resurfaced.

Jones says his opinions have changed and blames a lack of education about Islam.

Mayor Tyler Moore is condemning the comments, calling them "extremely disturbing."

City leaders have not indicated whether they'll try removing Jones from the council.
