Please allow me to apologize for what I did on Dec. 6, 2011.
My behaviour was extremely inappropriate, immature and lacked the respect for you to explain the truth to me. I was misled by the rumours that were being told to me.
It affected you and your life greatly. My actions caused many people to turn their backs on you. For this, I am truly sorry. It is very important for the people to know that the rumours I was hearing were not true, and that my actions were falsely motivated.
It was embarrassing, but I learned that nobody appreciated my poor behaviour. In the future, I have every intention of curbing my thoughtless actions and learn to adjust my behaviour befitting the people around me and situations I encounter.
Again, I am sorry for my actions and I apologize to everyone who was involved.
