He was dragged for using strong language on his viral video.
His son also released a statement expressing his disappointment in him. He said, “You may have seen the videos that have been going around about my dad…I understand the impact that it has on him as a brand equally on myself as an establishing brand. His actions of carelessness and selfishness has put myself and my family under a compromising position.
“The embarrassment is severe to a point of no expression. I’m where I am asking myself questions like ‘what happened to the doors I’m knocking on?’ I type this highly emotional with teary eyes. To some, it may be funny and some of you under the severity of pain and embarrassment my family is in,” he said before concluding his letter by thanking people for the support.
The actor issued an apology stating that he should have known better as an adult. “My apologies, I humbly, from the bottom of my heart, apologise for having used such strong language towards your mom. Even though the challenge would’ve been an ideal thing, but now it has been soured by what I said.
“I apologise from the bottom of my heart, please forgive me and forgive me South Africans. I am regretting every bit of the last sentence. That I used, I’m sorry.”
